Volvo Ocean Race - Telefonica continues her course

At 1900 UTC this evening, the Volvo Ocean Race crew aboard Telefonica were continuing their reach south at 18.5 knots amid the easterly trade winds whilst Puma’s Mar Mostro trailed behind at a limping pace of 2.3 knots under a jury rig of storm trysail and staysail.

Telefónica is continuing her course just east of south, taking care to avoid the threatening windless centre of the Saint Helena High to the east.

Camper (Chris Nicholson/NZL) has seized the opportunity and is now reeling in the wounded black cat. She is 48 nautical miles to the west of the track sailed by Puma’s Mar Mostro and approximately 55 nm behind. She is closing at a speed of 17.5 knots and ready to pounce.

Further back, Groupama 4 and Franck Cammas are averaging 18.4 knots - a speed almost as fast as Telefónica. Both Camper and Groupama 4 have made inroads into the lead this evening, with the French yacht gaining 16 nm.

Meanwhile, for the disheartened and disappointed crew of Puma’s Mar Mostro, it will be a long night as they review their options and make some key decisions.
