Three days of sailing is estimated for this leg and the weather is expected to be from lights to strong winds. The pressure is on the shoulders of the two teams that are on the top of the leaderboard. Team Irene and Band Poe are both eager to win in the overall ranking and they seemed ready to do so.
The windy finale that is forecasted near Incheon will be crucial and decisive for the winner. The most experienced crews have more potential to excel in this leg but also the preparation of their boats is a big factor.
