 VOR65  Ocean Race 2017/18  Leg 4  Day 7
The innertropical convergence zone - the Doldrums - decelerated the fleet even more yesterday. Passing the Salomon Islands, the only waypoint of the 4th has been reached. In very light winds of max. 5kn and the leading boats sailing at sight, the first four are positioned within 2nm, and the rest of the fleet is about to reduce the backlog more and more. The backmarker 'Scallywag' (David Witt AUS) was only 41nm behind this morning UTC. 'Dongfeng' (Franck Cammas FRA) was still on rank 1 but the advantage on 'Mapfre' (Xavi Fernandez ESP) was down on 0,5nm. 'Vestas' (Mark Towill USA) on 3rd followed 2nm back. In the coming 48hrs, the light winds will persist and posiition changes have to be expected.
