  • Reunited Fleet Now In A Tight Race

    Reunited Fleet Now In A Tight Race

    On Saturday it seemed as if the race couldn't get any closer. By Sunday morning UTC that was proved wrong.

    Today, all four teams are lined up on a 13 mile line extending north to south, but separated by less than 3 miles on the leaderboard. All this after three full weeks of racing.

    The reason for the close racing remains a stubbornly persistent ridge of high pressure and its light winds that is

    The wind is in the 18-22 knot range and the waves are 5 metres and decreasing. That's still plenty of motion on an IMOCA, making movement on board difficult, but slightly better than over
