While PUMA has taken the lead from their Spanish competitors, CAMPER and Groupama4 finally have wind and are eating miles again!

At 7am, PUMA Ocean Racing has a short 6 miles lead on Telefonica that won't let him take off. The two boats have gone through the doldrums quite easily, without the classical light winds conditions and the teams were not expecting this. As Amaury Ross, media-man on Mar Mostro explains " The unpredictible weather has kept us busy all night. We spent our time avoiding gusts and changing sails-- everybody is tired." Now only 50 miles away from the Doldrum's exit, conditions have calmed down and everybody is getting back on their normal watchs.


At the back of the fleat, CAMPER and Groupama4 are flying, going the same speed as the wind! No doubt that the 20 knots on the speedo this morning will give them some great motivation. Our Lorient based team and the Kiwis haven't given up and the Volvo Ocean Race will, once more, keep us in suspense...
