Volvo Ocean Race

After losing nine miles of his lead over 12 hours yesterday to the illbruck team, Grant Dalton on Amer Sports One has held onto his 31 mile advantage over the last six hours as the leaders in the Volvo Ocean Race speed east, 1500 miles from South Africa.
Meanwhile, Team SEB, djuice and Amer Sports Too, fighting for sixth position at the rear of the fleet, have sailed into a hole and are now over 600 miles adrift of the leaders.

"As hard as it is, we have to accept that we are in the second group and have to fight hard for our position. There is still 2,000 miles of racing with as many opportunities as there are traps," noted Gunnar Krantz from SEB yesterday evening.

These three are now expected into Cape Town two days after the leaders.
