Velux 5 Oceans British ocean racer Chris Stanmore-Major 'CSM' has crossed the finish line of the final sprint.

The British skipper finishes in second place to secure at least fourth place overall in his first solo circumnavigation of the globe and becomes only the 182nd person to race solo around the world

The 33-year-old sailed his 60ft yacht Spartan into La Rochelle, France, and across the ocean sprint five finish line at 11.06am local time (0906 UTC) in second place, his best result in the race so far.

Born in Lancaster, UK Chris now calls Cowes on the Isle of Wight home and has now completed two circumnavigations in two years after skippering a crewed boat around the world just last year. The Velux 5 Oceans 2010-11 was his first solo attempt.

Chris completed the 3,600-mile final sprint from Charleston in South Carolina to La Rochelle in 13 days, 14 hours and 06 minutes.
