Groupama and Telefónica have been trading first place overnight after the overall race leaders finally reduced the French team’s lead to zero late yesterday evening.

The scrap for first place could not have been tighter with Telefónica finally gaining the upper hand at the 2200 UTC position report last night, but by only 0.1 nautical miles (nm).

Three hours later at 0100 the pair were tied in an exact dead heat with both teams showing zero miles to the lead despite being separated laterally by 30 nm or more.

However, by 0400 UTC this morning Groupama had regained the upper hand and had eked out into a two and a half nautical mile lead on Telefónica.

Meanwhile, 20 nm back, the competition in the chasing pack is equally tight as PUMA defend the final podium spot from Abu Dhabi, CAMPER and Sanya -- with all four separated by just 22 nm.
