And that's the start gun, a downwind start, front row are PUMA, Ericsson 4 and Green Dragon.
A great start from PUMA, perfectly timed, really fast with a big masthead gennaker. No shortage of breeze at the moment, building nicely. PUMA are laying the first mark, with that sail up.
The order round the first mark was PUMA, Ericsson 4, Green Dragon, Team Russia, Telefonica Black, Telefonica Blue, Ericsson 3 and Delta Lloyd.
Ericsson 4 go round second, ease the sails and smoke off after PUMA on a reach. Telefonica Blue have had a great leg, they are third round the mark, and set off after Torben Grael and Ken Read. Green Dragon lose a place, but go round fourth.
Ericsson 3 have caught the headsail on the rig, and shredded it, the will have to change the sail.
Team Russia was fifth, then Telefonica Black in sixth place.
PUMA's biggest problem is that they can't get the Code Zero unfurled, they still have the small headsail up. But they are into the new breeze and are moving again.
