Volvo Ocean Race

Following the loss of her rudder at 2030 GMT on February 14, News Corp is continuing to race. The crew are pushing the boat as hard as they possibly can and are hoping to be in Rio within eight days, given the forecast conditions.

At this point in time, they are making an astounding 13.2 knots and keeping up well with the fleet. SEB is expected in Punta Arenas later today, following her dismasting earlier in this leg in the Southern Ocean.

Meanwhile, the fleet continue to make their way very quickly towards Rio de Janeiro with Tyco, djuice and ASSA ABLOY doing 19 knots boatspeed.

Tyco and Amer Sports One have pulled back some distance on illbruck since the last position report and there is only 16 miles separating them.
