Dongfeng Racing Team skipper Charlies Caudrelier won the Volvo Ocean Race as a crew with Frank Cammas’ Groupama in 2012, before launching the ambitious French and Chinese effort with Dongfeng. The team was a leading contender in the previous race before a Southern Ocean dismasting, which served to embolden Caudrelier for this edition of the race. Consistency was key in the end for Dongfeng and winning the final leg (their only leg win) into The Hague proved to be the ultimate storybook outcome.
