A North Atlantic storm during Leg 8 of the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12 wreaked havoc on the fleet but provided powerful winds that saw race speed records fall and boats averaging over 30 knots on multiple stretches.

Relive some of the wave-crashing, high-speed sailing action from Lisbon to Lorient won by Groupama sailing team.

Features all the major high-speed action including Telefonica's rudder breaking wipe-outs
