illbruck in the west, Amer Sports One and djuice in the east are all hanging on to around 18 knots of wind to keeping them moving towards the finish in Rio de Janeiro.

Not so fortunate are News Corp, Tyco and ASSA ABLOY, who have slowed down with almost 10 knots less wind while they wait for the front, which is expected later bringing with it stronger breezes. The Volvo Ocean Race fleet are now all able to take advantage of the Falklands Current helping to push them to the north, which will stay with them until they reach latitude around 40 degrees south.

Amer Sports Too is now approaching the Falkland Islands at around 14 knots boatspeed.
