The pictures show the fleet starting Leg 9 and dramatic shots of Telefonica Blue run aground and taking on water. The boat hit the rock while racing at around 14 knots of boatspeed and is hard aground in one-metre swells. The team immediately dropped the sails, but the boat’s keel was firmly wedged within the rocks whilst the rest of the fleet sailed away. All the crew were unhurt.
