For those who follow Sailing:
It's a happy day for me! First time a Brazilian boat participates in the renowned race and we finished third place on the Vigo, Spain to CPT leg!
We were in second for a while, but lost ground to ABN AMRO TWO, who finished second place after it's sistership ABN AMRO ONE.
Curiosity: Embraer is a sponsor of the Brazilian team, Brasil 1. If you look at the front sail (what's the term in english for "front sail" anyone?) you will see their logo. Also on the hull.
Fourth place, Ericsson Racing Team, still has 76 nautical miles to go (as I type).
Two teams abandoned the race, movistar and Pirates of the Caribbean - who is sponsoring them? Disney??

Now it's all the way to MEL!!
