Groupama welcomed to Auckland!

 

 

Groupama crossed the finish line at 11:33.47pm (unofficial time) to win Leg 4 of the Volvo Ocean Race, more than 80 miles ahead of their nearest rival.

 

"It's a great day for Groupama 4 and it's a great to arrive here first into Auckland,'' said skipper Franck Cammas. "I'm pretty sure we're going to have a good time here with all the sailing fans. It's a good place to win for sure."

 

Family and friends celebrated with them on the arrivals pontoon before the crew took the stage to be saluted by the crowd and presented with champagne.
