Volvo Ocean Race

There is no let up in the pressure for the leading three boats in the Volvo Ocean Race. It has been nip and tuck for the past 24 hours, with less than 5 miles covering the three, and now there is just a one mile gap between first and third.

The main difference is that ASSA ABLOY has dropped from being in amongst the leaders, to trailing them by 22 miles. With just over 200 miles to the finish line in Baltimore, and light winds forecast for the run up the Chesapeake, the nail biting is set to continue right up to the line
