The top three teams in the In-Port Race Series for the Volvo Ocean Race held down the podium positions on Friday afternoon in Cardiff, as Dongfeng Race Team made a pass on the last lap of the race course to claim the win.

The overall leader in the In-Port Series, Xabi Fernández’s MAPFRE, limited the damage on the points table with a second place finish, while Bouwe Bekking’s Team Brunel battled all afternoon to secure third place.

AkzoNobel took fourth, while Vestas 11th Hour Racing fought back for a fifth place finish ahead of David Witt’s SHK/Scallywag and Dee Caffari’s Turn the Tide on Plastic.
