AT SEA – JANUARY 15: In this handout image provided by the Volvo Ocean Race, onboard Team Alvimedica. Day 13. After a day of becalmed drifting in the Bay of Bengal, a light wind fills from the north–a welcome change but unfortunate in that the rest of the fleet was first to it. Smooth sailing at sunrise during Leg 3 between Abu Dhabi, UAE and Sanya, China. The Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15 is the 12th running of this ocean marathon. Starting from Alicante in Spain on October 11, 2014, the route, spanning some 39,379 nautical miles, visits 11 ports in 11 countries (Spain, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, China, New Zealand, Brazil, United States, Portugal, France, the Netherlands and Sweden) over nine months. The Volvo Ocean Race is the world’s premier ocean race for professional racing crews. (Photo by Amory Ross/Team Alvimedica/Volvo Ocean Race via Getty Images)
