VOR: Brunel hold off Dongfeng and win Leg 7 by only 14m50s – full report on today's 'Tuesdays with TFE' at 1300 Pacific / 1600 Eastern / 2200 CET / 0800+1 NZT

SAN FRANCISCO – Congrats to Team Brunel on their Leg 7 win this morning, on what some are calling the toughest leg in the history of the Volvo Ocean Race. Brunel match-raced Dongfeng for the last 24 hours or so, indeed for the last three days, into the finish off Itajaí, Brazil on South America's east coast. They beat finished ahead of Dongfeng by less than fifteen minutes. Full report on Brunel's win, and the status of the other teams, on today's Tuesdays with TFE live webcast over on our Sailing Illustrated Facebook page at 1300 Pacific.

Only 14m50s separated the two after the 7600 mile race from Auckland, through some of the coldest and roughest ocean in the world. The rest of the fleet is not expected until later this week.
