I'm giving a huge hometown welcome from the west coast to especially Team Alvimedica, who arrived last evening, placing 5th in leg six. Although not their best result or best leg of the race, there is something particularly memorable about sailing that leg from Itajaí, Brazil to Newport, Rhode Island (over 5,000 nautical miles). It's a proud day for us locals and the sailing community.
