The Volvo Ocean Race fleet had another day of trade wind power reaching toward the Caribbean, holding the true wind direction at about 120 degrees as they kept their boat speed near 20 knots. The distances between the boats have increased, mainly because of different current zones. 'Abu Dhabi' (Ian Walker GBR) and 0,1 miles behind 'Dongfeng' (Charles Caudrelier FRA) sailing more East benefit from a rear current, while the rest of the fleet advances at less speed because of a counter current. The 3rd-ranked 'Brunel' (Bouwe Bekking NED) has now a backlog of 13,4 miles, and the all-female 'SCA' team on the 6th position were 60 miles behind this morning.
