Leader illbruck

Volvo Ocean Race

The pace for the Volvo Ocean Race has slightly eased off, giving the crews slightly improved living conditions onboard their yachts.
While illbruck is still reaching in 30 knots of southwesterly breeze the yachts behind get the wind more and more from the west and lighter. It is likely that the 40-mile gap that separates illbruck from Tyco, Amer Sports One and News Corp will widen.

Even though being struck by gear failure, the mainsail clew ring broke, and heavy snowfall, djuice manages to keep control over the fight for fifth place against ASSA ABLOY and SEB. SEB is less than forty miles from 60-degree south. Amer Sports Too was the first yacht to get into lighter westerlies and has to gybe downwind to keep the northerly position.
