The other finish line in Spain...

Cheminees Poujoulat has crossed the finish line of the Velux 5 Oceans in Bilbao, Spain - offering us all a welcome break from the flood of news from Valencia - to complete the third and final leg of the race from Norfolk (USA) in 11 days, 23 hours and 53 minutes ago.

After 103 days, 22 hours and 10 minutes at sea, Bernard Stamm of Cheminees Poujoulat won every leg of the race and finished with a lead of more than 14 days on the overall ranking over second place Kojiro Shiraishi. Shiraishi finished the final leg 43 minutes behind Stamm.

Here's a link to the image gallery from the line crossing.
