Turn the Tide on Plastic fourth into Brazil

 
Dee Caffari’s Turn the Tide on Plastic ghosted across the finish line for Volov Race Leg 7 at Itajaí, Brazil in light winds taking fourth place, collecting 8 points.

The team crossed the finish line in extremely light winds at 04:12:44 UTC on Saturday morning. Their time for Leg 7 was 20 days, 03:12:44.

“The team is growing every leg,” Caffari said. “We proved it in the last leg in the lighter winds and flat water and now we’ve proved it in a big wind, big waves condition as well. These guys can take anything on and I back them 100 per-cent every time.”

MAPFRE is the only boat still racing in Leg 7 and is forecast to finish approximately 24 hours behind Turn the Tide on Plastic, in the early hours of Sunday morning (UTC)
