Volvo Ocean Race

The fleet is splitting up more and more. illbruck is still holding the lead with incredible pace, hunted by Amer Sports One, News Corp and Tyco, all roughly 30 miles behind, doing the same speed or slightly faster.
Amer Sports One is on the same latitude now having managed to get down without bigger losses after being the first one who went east further north some days ago.

Djuice, ASSA ABLOY and SEB are all falling back, lacking one to two knots of boat speed, without a noticeable difference in wind conditions.

Amer Sports Too's skipper Lisa McDonald reported a bad cold with symptoms of flu. Still she is doing her watch and pushing the boat. It must be a bad day for Lisa, because four years ago she was in the same waters, when damage in the rig of EF Education, eventually caused the mast to come down a week later.
