Team Sanya celebrated the Chinese New Year this weekend by leading the Volvo Ocean Race fleet off the start line on the 3,051-nautical mile Leg 3 second stage from the Maldives to their home port in Sanya, China.  And just in the past hours, at 1300 UTC on day two of this stage, there were just 10 nautical miles separating PUMA’s Mar Mostro at the front and last placed Team Sanya. Just over one mile stood between CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand and first place. This is a close one, folks, and here are some additional photos from the past 36 hours...
