Volvo Ocean Race

The Volvo Ocean Race fleet is now some 80 nautical miles to the east of the Antipodes Islands at 49 degrees south, still all heading in a southerly direction.
At last the weather reports are predicting fresh to strong wind, nearing gale force at times and backing into the southwest. The V.O.60s have been eagerly awaiting this for a few days now, in anticipation of their fast sleigh ride towards Cape Horn.

The boats are maintaining an east west spread of around 30 miles with Amer Sports Too furthest to the west, along with djuice, and News Corp furthest to the east.

Keryn Henderson wrote earlier from Amer Sports Too, "There is a real 'calm before the storm' feeling.. The Southern Ocean is about to come and bite us hard".
