Ericsson 4 extends their lead in the Volvo Ocean Race by finishing first in the In-Port race in Qingdao

This week's Picture of the Week is from the Volvo Ocean Race. As if the long distance legs weren't enough, once they reach port, the boats compete in the 'in port' races which allow the teams to pick up points on their competition racing around buoys. This photo provides you with a 'bird's eye view' of the bow of one of these massive Volvo Open 70 boats. Take a virtual tour of the VO70s by clicking on this link: Virtual Tour.
