VOR Jury awards Redress to team AkzoNobel

AkzoNobel gets redress, but Vestas 11th Hour Racing gets turned down…

Team AkzoNobel has been awarded redress in the form of a time credit to its finishing time for Leg 4 by the International Jury for the Volvo Ocean Race, but Vestas 11th Hour Race had its request for redress turned down.

The Jury found the finishing time of team AkzoNobel has been adversely impacted through no fault of its own after the team was diverted from racing near the conclusion of Leg 4 at the request of Race Control.

Team AkzoNobel is therefore awarded a credit of 1 hour and 20 minutes on its racing time for Leg 4. This does not change the finishing positions for Leg 4 or the overall leader board for the Volvo Ocean Race.

In a separate hearing, the International Jury did not award redress to Vestas 11th Hour Racing, finding insufficient evidence to support granting the request.
