Skipper of GREAT Britain Simon Talbot (44) from Essex celebrated in style after winning a valuable twelve points, he said, "This is a great boost for the crew who have worked so hard in this race to achieve a well-deserved victory.  We led the fleet for the first 8 to 10 hours out of Rio but then came a point we had to make the strategic decision to push further south. We went from first to eighth but then it started to pay off.

"You have to take advantage of the wind that is available and the new yachts go very, very fast when you do. Thankfully it paid off and tactics worked out beautifully on this race and I'm very happy. Well done team!"

After racing the 4,000 miles in the last two weeks from Rio de Janeiro to Cape Town, the brand new matched fleet of twelve 70 foot ocean racers continue to provide very close racing. Round the world crew member on board GREAT Britain , Ionie Robinson from Northampton said:

 "It was a very tactical race. We followed the wind and then we found it we went into the lead. It was a great race."
