Australian entry Sunergy and Friends skippered by Grant WHARINGTON (AUS) are back in the race and trying something different. They clearly will not catch the leaders by following in their wake. The four boats ahead are further south and sailing in different wind conditions. 'We're not rolling the dice on this one,' wrote navigator Campbell FIELD, 'just be aware that we have to be a little more clever.'
History has proven that a 500 or 600 nm deficit is not a disaster when you have around 5,000 nm to go, and this thought is keeping Sunergy and Friends positive and focussed.
