Even though the stretch is tiny, it's always pleasant to be first! Behind the Frenchies, Telefonica, Puma, Camper and Abu Dhabi are ready to attack.


As the first five crews settle back into regular watch systems and brace themselves for storm force winds and huge seas, the standings remain unchanged, with race leader’s Team Telefónica maintaining the narrowest of leads after holding off a sustained challenge from second placed Groupama sailing team.

PUMA Ocean Racing powered by BERG remain in third, just over 10 nautical miles ahead of fourth and fifth placed Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing and CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand who continue to stalk one another closely, less than two nautical miles apart.

Sixth placed Team Sanya are expected to escape the clutches of the Singapore Strait later today after a near miss with an unlit fishing net on the approach to Singapore.
