Sail-World.com : Predicted arrival in Mediterranean for Team Legato

Predicted arrival in Mediterranean for Team Legato

11:00 GMT TEAM LEGATO WARTA POLPHARMA
Position: 33 45'N 9 08'W 39 28'N 0 52'E
Speed at time of satellite poll: 11.0 knots 5.1 knots
Average speed for last hour: 11.7 knots 3.1 knots
Course: 336 Degrees 56 Degrees
Distance covered over 24 hours: 145 miles 221 miles
Distance between the two: 619 miles


Now within 150 miles of sighting the Rock of Gibraltar, Tony Bullimore
predicts that he and his TEAM LEGATO crew will pass through the Straits into
the Mediterranean early tomorrow on the final stage of their
circumnavigation.

Having been beating non-stop since the Falklands, the Bullimore Boys can't
wait for a change in wind direction. Any direction other than on the nose
will do, but for the moment it looks like more of the same as they continue
to beat up the North African coast.

Polish rival Warta Polpharma passed through the Straits at 20:30 GMT on
Saturday 7th April and they are now slowed by a Mistral which has reduced
their speed to just 5 knots. However, the time it takes them to complete the
final 300 miles to Marseilles, will be a good indicator as to TEAM LEGATO's
finish date. For the moment it looks like Thursday or Friday.

Leading positions at 11:00 GMT today

1. Club Med Finished Marseilles 19:56GMT 3.03.01
2. Innovation Explorer Finished Marseilles 11:32GMT 6.03.01
3. Team Adventure Finished Marseilles 09:30GMT 24.03.01
4. Warta Polpharma 305 miles- Passed Gibraltar 07.03.01
5. Team Legato + 619 miles - Pit-stopped in Las Palmas 06.04.01
6. PlayStation - RETIRED 14.01
