Volvo Ocean Race

djuice has passed ASSA ABLOY gaining 23 miles on her in 6 hours, from passing outside Isla de los Estrados, where the fleet were stuck early in adverse current.

illbruck is still leading the fleet and covering ASSA ABLOY, News Corp and Tyco, who all appear to be taking the northerly route inside the Falkland Islands. djuice and Amer Sports One at this stage appear to have committed to passing to the south and outside the Falkland Islands, searching for more wind from a weather system building offshore. djuice will be looking to build further on her gains of the last six hours.

John Kostecki was aware that there would be a tactical dilemma for the navigators to make and asked the question earlier, "This next bit up to Rio will be very difficult tactically. Do you cover the fleet or do we go with what we think is best?"

Meanwhile Amer Sports Too is now less than 300 miles from Cape Horn.
