A victorious Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, aboard his yacht Saga Insurance
, arrived in 3rd place of the final leg of the VELUX 5 Oceans
. The leg from Norfolk, Virginia, USA, to Bilbao, Basque Region, Spain, will leave him in 3rd or 4th place overall, depending on when rival Unai Basurko finishes in the next 48 hours.
