Pero quedaba la última regata costera por recorrer, la Inmarsat In-Port Race Gotemburg, donde el VO65 español Mapfre capitaneado por el regatista olímpico, Iker Martínez, ha quedado cuarto en la clasificación general empatando con Team Avendica en una etapa en la que la faltaba viento. Esto le obligó a acortar el recorrido, y ha ganado el equipo holandés Team SCA.

Una jornada especial para el rey emérito ya que en la final de la Volvo ha tenido ocasión de reunirse con 18 tripulantes del Bribón y recordar años de competición junto a Josep Cusi.
