Just two miles separate the top five VOR boats as they head south towards the Southern Ocean

The racing is still so close that just seven miles separate the top seven boats. SEB snatched the lead overnight and all except Amer Sports Too have gybed in the hope of finding stronger winds for their route south.

The forecast is for the wind to pick up to around 20 knots later from a north-westerly direction which should benefit Djuice out to the west.
