After nine months, the final results are in for this edition of the world-girdling yacht race. In today's Gothenburg In-Port Race, Team Alvimedica came in 5th, behind MAPFRE's 3rd place finish, deciding 4th place overall in MAPRE's favor, so Alvimedica takes 5th overall. Congratulations MAPFRE!
 
Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing, which won the overall trophy, needed only to not finish last in order to win the In-Port Series trophy as well, whereas second-place Team Brunel not only had to win the Gothenburg In-Port in order to win the series, but have Abu Dhabi finish last as well. And that's almost what happened, as Brunel did come in first, but Abu Dhabi pulled out a squeaker in 6th place. So, congratulations to the double trophy winner, Abu Dhabi!
 
Team SCA came in 2nd, Dongfeng Race Team 4th, and Team Vestas Wind, which has had terrible luck this edition (including a shipwreck off Africa in Leg 2!
 
) came in last.

Once again, congratulations and gratitude to all involved, and let's look forward to 2017.
