VOR65 - Ocean Race 2017/18 - Leg 4 - Day 11. Elodie-Jane Mettraux SUI

 VOR65 - Ocean Race 2017/18 - Leg 4 - Day 11. Elodie-Jane Mettraux SUI The closely packed fleet crossed the Equator direction North during the past night, but the trade winds have not yet turned up. However, the weather maps are predicting fresh Eastwinds by this afternoon UTC to provide for a fast ride to the West direction Hong Kong. Some teams veered East to touch the wind as early as possible. It will be known soon whether this strategy will pay off.
New on the first position this morning UTC was 'Mapfre' with Xavi Fernandez ESP, followed by 'Turn the tide on plastic' with Dee Caffari GBR and Elodie-Jane Mettraux SUI as 2nd with a 12nm backlog. The race tracker, the news and the video of the day.

Crystal Sun/Olivia Hobbs, who were the only girls to make the cut into the gold fleet, finished 21st overall and took the title as top female team.

VOR65 - Ocean Race 2017/18 - Leg 4 - Day 8. Elodie-Jane Mettraux SUI

 VOR65 - Ocean Race 2017/18 - Leg 4 - Day 8. Elodie-Jane Mettraux SUI On day two in the Doldrums, the fleet was reshuffled several times in the past 24 hours. This morning UTC, 'Turn the tide on Plastic' with Dee Caffari GBR (and Elodie Jane Mettraux SUI) was in the lead as the most westerly boat of the fleet on a more direct course to the port of call. However, she will most probably touch the important northern trade winds after the bulk of the fleet. 'Dongfeng' (Franck Cammas FRA) and 'Mapfre' (Xavi Fernandez ESP), the leaders of the past days, dropped on the ranks 5 and 6 for the moment, but their backlog is only a few miles.

VOR65 - Ocean Race 2017/18 - Leg 4 - Day 3, the Mettraux sisters SUI

 VOR65 - Ocean Race 2017/18 - Leg 4 - Day 3, the Mettraux sisters SUI Rear winds are pushing the fleet North along the Australian Eastcoast at good speeds. 'Dongfeng' (with Charles Caudrelier FRA and Justine Mettraux SUI) in the lead, followed by 'AkzoNobel' (Simeon Tienpont NED) and 'Turn the tide on plastic' (Dee Caffari GBR, Elodie-Jane Mettraux SUI), are on a more Easterly route taking advantage of a current and distanced the rest of the fleet somewhat. At the Northeastern point of Australia, a tactically difficult light-wind zone will probably spread the fleet considerably. Interesting to follow up on our website anyhow !
