For the leaders, it's tight, it's tense and it's serious. The eight-boat fleet have collected their points at the scoring gate at Fernando de Noronha and are on the long march south. Next stop Cape Town.
The mighty Green Dragonn stashed away maximum points from the first scoring gate at Fernando de Noronha yesterday lunchtime. Then headed for the beach with Ericsson 4 and PUMA tight on her tail.
When Team Telefonica (Black then Blue) followed them through, we had a five-way-tie for the overall points standing, with just over 10 miles separating the top four boats on the water.
