 VOR65  Ocean Race 2017/18  Leg 2  Day 11
The seven VOR teams are now about half-way of the leg 2 distance to Cape Town off the Brazilian coast. The moderate southern trade winds push the boats at high speeds from 15 to 20kn.
The positions this morning have been shaken up as the different courses sailed by the still closely together fleet have a major influence. The formerly leading duo 'Dongfeng' and 'Mapfre' remained in the West, while the backmarkers 'AkzoNobel' (Simeon Tienpont NED) and 'Scallywag' (David Witt AUS) opted for an easterly course, more direct to Cape Town, and are now in the lead. All depends on the extension of the calmy St-Helena high pressure system, that has been growing in the last hours making the direct way to the port of call less attractive.
