Further but Faster

ABN AMRO ONE (Mike Sanderson), leading the Volvo fleet in the leg one race to Cape Town, is standing on and sailing further miles but heading towards much more breeze, which should set them up for a fast ride in the closing stages. Both ABN AMRO TWO (Sebastien Josse) in second place, and Brasil 1 (Torben Grael) in third, gybed at around 0700 GMT this morning, have opted for the more direct route, but the breeze to the north of them is lighter.

Further back in the field, Sunergy and Friends (Grant Wharington) has also turned the corner, around the bottom of the South Atlantic High and should start to pick up some good sailing conditions to bring her into Cape Town.
