 VOR65  Ocean Rce 2017/18  Leg 7  Day 5
The fleet has now reached the Howling Fifties on their way south. In about 25kn of wind the VOR65 are able to sail at more than 20kn. Shortly before reaching the ice border, all 7 teams have now turned to the east. From the rear there is a weather system with wind speeds of up to 40kn approaching. The remaining 5 days to the Cape Horn will therefore become very rough. This morning 'AkzoNobel' with Simeon Tienpont NED was in the lead. The first pursuers 'Vestas' (Charlie Enright USA) and 'Mapfre' (Javi Fernandez ESP) are still just a few miles behind. The Race Tracker, the reports and the Video of the Day.
