“No, of course not,” answers Gurra Krantz, Skipper of the Swedish Volvo Ocean Race entry SEB, with 223 miles to the finish in Cape Town.

"We have had our moments and the last couple of weeks we have had some really good racing with Amer Sports Too and djuice. We are still enjoying it and it will be a battle to the finish with djuice," he continued, but also saying that they are very keen to get their feet on African soil.

As SEB and djuice started to slow down a bit, it's on the girls on Amer Sports Too to catch up a bit. At the moment their ETA is 12 hours behind djuice, so they better speed up a lot.
