Ross and Campbell Field on BSL in second place are in the Karamea Bight, south of Cape Farewell, averaging 5.4 knots with 134 miles of Leg 2 remaining.
As the two Class40s approach and cross the Leg 2 finish line in Wellington Harbour, the Global Ocean Race's Geovoile Race Tracker update frequency has been increased to hourly position reports. Once Ross and Campbell Field have crossed the finish line, the frequency will return to once every three hours.
