The International Jury has dismissed a charge of misconduct under Rule 69 of the Racing Rules of Sailing against David Witt and Steve Hayles, following a complaint to World Sailing.

In its decision, the International Jury wrote:

The complaint, put forward by an outside party not associated with the race, focused on content contained in a video produced from on board Scallywag during Leg 2 of the race.

Steve Hayles has stepped down as navigator for Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag, to be replaced by Antonio Fontes.

Jordi Neves, Chief Digital Officer of the Volvo Ocean Race:

The teams next take to the water on Friday 8 December in Cape Town for the In-Port Race, before the start of Leg 3, from Cape Town to Melbourne, Australia on Sunday 10 December.
