Volvo Ocean Race

The leading boat in the current leg of the Volvo Ocean Race, illbruck, has just reached the south east corner of the ice exclusion zone.

illbruck is now able to turn onto a north easterly course and head straight for their destination, La Rochelle, 1929 miles away. Thus far the boats are ahead of schedule,but they have to negotiate a slack area of high pressure on their way to the finish, and can expect lighter winds over the next 24 hours. The forecast for the girls in the dismasted Amer Sports Too, could not be more different. They have been warned that there is a deep depression forming over Nova Scotia, and they can expect to be headed by gale force winds within the next 18 hours. Amer Too is currently heading towards Halifax at a speed of 10 knots, and has 180 miles to run.
