The routes of the different skippers are very similar. 

© Great CircleNandor Fa should cross the finish line in less than 36 hours in a north-westerly wind which should decrease tomorrow. The Hungarian skipper has managed to avoid the different very strong wind zones between the depressions. 

There are no important tactical options for the rest of the fleet. All the skippers need to round the Azores high pressure system before sailing in the low-pressure systems in the North which will take them to the finish line.

In the South, Technofirst has now crossed the area of lows. Sébastien Destremau will now sail upwind until the end of the week before sailing in the trade winds behind No Way Back.
