They've been racing for 43 hours - now another race is under way!

21  Oct.  2014 -  08h 18

For the moment, there is a headwind of 15 to 20 knots - it is expected to freshen to 25 knots during the day.

In real time, the New Zealanders of "Crusader" are ahead of "Keel Bill Groupama". Hard on "Keel Bill"'s heels is "Catch Me OPT". On board, weariness is setting in, even amongst leading yachts. The crew of "BCI Radical Concept", contacted by telephone this morning, said "It's hard work; we're keeping up a cracking pace; we can't wait for daybreak". Their tiredness is well justified - On handicap, "BCI Radical Concept" did extremely well over night - they gained three hours on "Crusader". The New Caledonian crew are ahead in crew placings - on handicap.

Real Time Placings at 5am Nouméa time:

  1. Crusader
  2. Keel Bill Groupama
  3. Catch me OPT
  4. Mange Mieux Bouge Plus
  5. BCI Radical Concept
  6. Chairman Pao Production
  7. XLR8 Province Sud
