As the VOR fleet approaches the stronger winds, Team SEB continues to hold her position at the front of the fleet

The Volvo Ocean Race fleet is now 80 nautical miles to the east of the Antipodes Islands at 49 degrees south, still heading in a southerly direction. At last the weather reports there are fresh to strong wind, nearing gale force at times and backing into the south-west, on the way.

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.
