 VOR65  Ocean Race 2017/18  Leg 2  Day 10
The closely packed fleet is sailing down South at speeds around 17kn along the Brazilian coast. 'Dongfeng' (Charles Caudrelier FRA) is still leading 1,6nm ahead of 'Mapfre' (Xavi Fernandez ESP). Even the backmarker 'Scallywag' (David Witt AUS) with a 57nm backlog has still an option to finish first in Cape Town. The coming 24h are important for the strategy to follow. With the St-Helena anticyclone compressed by a depression vortex in the South, their is an option to head straight for Cape Town, as did François Gabart successfuilly in his record ride two days ago. It might well be, that one or the other teams goes into stealth mode to leave the opponents in doubt about the decision made.
