The Volvo Ocean Race fleet is nearing the finish of Leg 8 at Lorient, France. The sailboats could arrive as early as 4 am UTC [time converter] on Thursday, June 11th--which is 12 midnight EDT (US). JohnTheCrowd.com will post LIVE video of the finish once available from volvooceanrace.com. The women's team--Team SCA--has been leading much of Leg 8, will they finally win a First Place Finish or will Team Vestas Wind claim victory in its return to the VOR after grounding in the Indian Ocean and withdrawal from VOR due to necessary repairs?

Inside Track: Leg 8 #7 | Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15 - Jun 10, 2015: It's looking a bit grim in the Bay of Biscay as the fleet enters the final hours of Leg 8. Broken boats and broken bodies, but Ian Walker and the Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing team can almost taste it.
