Sadly no great gains for SEB following its southerly course, not the great gains they had hoped for anyway.
Having now to sail between five and ten degrees higher than their competitors means they cannot build speed in the same way and are hoping that the breeze holds out for them to keep their well earned fourth position.
In the last six hours there have been no change in yacht positions but ASSA ABLOY and Tyco have both made small miles up on the current leg leader Illbruck. ASSA ABLOY being now four miles closer to her arch rival and Tyco five. The other two yachts to gain slightly were Amer Sports One by three and News Corp by one. Djuice was the only yacht to lose any distance being the most westerly and losing three.
Most of the fleet are heading straight for the finish with reacher and staysail in good visibility, although skies are overcast with an air temperature of 14 degrees centigrade.
