Assa Abloy has taken a two-mile lead from Tyco and illbruck

The battle at the front of the VOR fleet continues with Assa Abloy taking the slight advantage over Tyco and illbruck as they head towards the equator.

News Corp is still making gains on the front group while the rest of the fleet continues to become more spread out with the girls on Amer Sports Too suffering the biggest losses once more. They are currently trying to hold onto seventh position and stay ahead of SEB in these variable and fickle wind conditions, while djuice is keeping the pressure on and closing the gap between themselves and Amer Sports One.
