Barcelona World Race - Easy miles for breakfast

Barcelona World Race ©

Barcelona World Race update. Close to, or on the direct theoretical route, Jean Pierre Dick and Loïck Peyron are eating up the miles at a steady rate on Virbac Paprec 3 with some 450 miles still to go to the most western point of the Australia safety barrier. They have around 30 knots of WNW wind and averaged just under 16kts through the night.

Compared with the first edition of the race, they are still about 600 miles behind the equivalent time period.

Mapfre crossed the Amsterdam gate yesterday evening and really down have much in the way of tactical opportunities, still stuck into variable breezes over the last 24 hours they have lost 100 miles on the leaders, and Estrella Damm has made 69 miles back on them and Pepe Ribes and Alex Pella are now 73 miles behind their friends and Spanish rivals. Groupe Bel have been very slightly quicker over night than Estrella Damm but are just 54 miles behind. Renault ZE Sailing Team have got 250 miles to go to make the Amsterdam gate, averaging 15 kts in 25 kts of mainly W’ly wind.

Neutrogena and Mirabaud are closer again in terms of miles , although partly because Herrmann and Breymaier are to the north of Mirabaud and so closer to the rhumb line, but it is the first time in recent days that they have been north of Wavre and Paret. The benefit to Mirabaud is more wind pressure just now, though Neutrogena are second quickest in the fleet and are computed to be just nine miles behind.

The girls on GAES Centros Auditivos are making a direct course to the next gate, straight as an arrow this morning, and making 14knots. Ninety miles further to the south they have Hugo Boss pushing hard at nearly 19 knots. Andy Meiklejohn and Wouter Verbraak have around 40kts ideally positioned riding the low and gained 39 miles on the girls overnight to be 143 miles behind this morning.

FMC have made good progress since crossing the gate yesterday while We Are Water have 60 miles to go this morning making eight knots. And Central Lechera Asturiana are 150 miles north of the gate latitude, converging at a good pace.
