SEB has made a determined move towards the south, altering her course by 20 degrees since the last sked, even passing across illbruck’s track.
SEB the southernmost boat recorded multiple ice sightings and two small icebergs, News Corp reported "ice sightings all the time, large and small".

Amer Sports One was the fastest yacht over the last six hours, just under 20 knots of average boat speed in up to 47 knots of wind. The waves built up as well and the onboard wave height sensor recorded a 13,45 metre high mountain.

ASSA ABLOY, Tyco and djuice started to level out on an easterly course, while illbruck, SEB and News Corp still head further south towards 60 south. This will give them a shorter course, but extreme temperatures as well.
