At 04:35 local time BRONENOSEC with Team Russia crossed the finish line as the first of the Swan 60 yachts making them the winners of the first leg. However, this result is only preliminary as there has been a protest raised against the team.
Only three minutes behind the Russians came Team Europe to the finish in Helsinki after having raced the approximately 150 nautical miles from Saint Petersburg. In third place is Team Germany on board SGM, followed by Team Finland on board TSAAR PETER and Team Great Britain on board PETITE FLAMME at 05:51.
The fleet is berthed at Helsingfors Segelklubb where they will enjoy a BBQ later on before having to brave the Baltic Sea once again for the second leg to Warnemünde which starts at 18:00 local time.
