In the IMOCA Ocean Masters New York to Barcelona Race the first arrivals are set to finish today (Sunday) at 16:00-22:00 Barcelona time having picked up speed slightly since lunchtime yesterday.

Last night the three IMOCA 60s were downwind until around 02:00 local time, but since then the wind has veered into the northnortheast putting the boats on the wind.

Overnight the bubble burst following Saturday’s soaring temperatures in Barcelona. This resulted in some thunderstorms and torrential downpours. It is these conditions too that the boats out on the race course are also seeing as they pass some 50 miles west of Majorca this morning.

On the water Hugo Boss found the better conditions first yesterday afternoon but second placed Team Neutrogena has done a good job keeping up and remains 32 miles astern, despite skipper Guillermo Altadill attempting to mix it up by taking a track to the east of Hugo Boss’ overnight.

Behind GAES has not been enjoying the improved conditions of the leaders. It remains very light for her and she has lost a further 40 miles – now 160 miles behind the leader. Her ETA into Barcelona is now late on Monday.
