Warta-Polpharma Expected In Marseilles Tuesday
No ALT tag specified

The Race

Warta-Polpharma is just 500 miles away from Marseilles.
A strong Mistral might hinder the boat's progress on Monday, forcing her to slow down so as not to risk breaking anything at the end of this race. The Polish boat passed through Gibraltar Straits yesterday at 2037 GMT.

Far behind, Team Legato is having a job to beat against the wind and has only covered 180 miles in the last 24 hours. Polled at a speed of barely 4 knots at the last position report and a little over 1000 miles from Marseilles, the English boat will probably not cross the finishing line before Thursday or Friday, unless weather conditions are particularly favourable for her in the Mediterranean.
