Team Tyco lead

Volvo Ocean Race

Steve Hayles, navigator on Tyco offered the recipe to get in front: “…fast accurate sailing and efficient sail changes will be the order of the day.”
Shortly after the crew showed what their navigator meant and moved into the lead. At the front there is a cluster of five yachts within three miles, heating up the competition between ASSA ABLOY, illbruck, Amer Sports One and djuice, all in hot pursuit of Tyco.

Meanwhile SEB has altered her course towards her closest competitor News Corp, sailing on a westerly track in the hope to move up from last place. The female crew on Amer Sports Too is highly motivated as they match the pace of the other yachts and stay in contention.

As most yachts have changed crewmembers since the first leg, the veterans start thinking how to expose the novices to Neptune's wrath.
