Waypoint change elevates Sanya and Abu Dhabi to top three

Team Sanya's bold southerly track on the second stage of Leg 4 is paying dividends and when race control switched the waypoint used in the distance to finish (DTF) calculation from the north east tip of the Philippines to the Poor Knights Islands close to Auckland.

Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing also benefiteed from the change, moving from fourth to third.

Leg leaders CAMPER remained in front and Team Telefónica stayed in fifth with PUMA Ocean Racing in sixth. Groupama sailing team fared the worst however, dropping from second to fourth based on the new data.

The fleet now is divided by just 19.4 nautical miles from first to sixth position.

To ensure the accuracy of the race tracker three waypoints are used to calculate the fleet’s distance to finish (DTF) data during the second stage of Leg 4.

At 0800 UTC this morning the first waypoint just off the north east tip of the Philippines was replaced by the second waypoint located near the Poor Knights Islands north of Auckland.

Waypoint 3 is located just close to Tiritiri Matangi Island and will come into play as the fleet closes in on Auckland at the end of the leg.
