Spanish Threat in Volvo Race

Spain's Telefonica Blue  rebounded to win the in-port race Sunday in Stockholm in the Volvo round-the-world yacht race.

 But the four points it gained are unlikely to be enough to see it take second place from the American entry Puma Ocean Racing when the event  concludes later this month.

The Spaniards can only take the second spot behind the overall  winners Ericsson 4 if Puma is forced to withdraw from the 10th and final stage from Stockholm to St Petersburg, Russia.

Sweden's Ericsson 4 sealed its overall victory on June 15 by  finishing third in the ninth stage from Marstrand in Sweden to Stockholm, leaving it with an unassailable lead.
