Volvo Ocean Race

During the last night, the Volvo Ocean Race fleet got into the winds of the massive low-pressure system that is recorded with 948hPa, low by any means.
It will generate the strong winds that the yachts need to generate record-breaking speeds. ASSA ABLOY and djuice are already on the pace for the last six hours with Amer Sports One just slightly under. The benchmark was set by SEB on leg 2 with 460 miles. With just 1800 miles left to Cape Horn this will be the last low they can ride.

Paul Cayard reported after, what he claims to be the best two hours of helming he did for a long time: "We have averaged 21.5 knots for the last four hours. Not sure we sustained that pace for four hours last time. The keel makes a loud whistle at 25 knots of boat speed. Two reefs and storm kite is the menu right now."
