Update on Volvo Ocean Race boat arrivals in Newport, RI tonight: First three teams expected tonight (6 May) from 10pm - 1am local (tonight) MAPFRE from 12am - 3am local (7 May) Team Alvimedica from 3am - 5am local (7 May) Team SCA from 3pm - 8pm local (7 May) See two diagrams for the finish line. The boats have to pass outside mark 1 leaving it their right side and then leave mark 0 on their left side to cross the finish line. The red pin, is the tower with red triangle with number 2 on it (pic attached) - the mark 0 will be a VOR mark. From the water, there’s a Welcome to Newport sign in front of finish line mark, looking out to mark 0, which will make for a cool view. @volvooceanrace #newport #sailing #volvooceanrace
