Light winds have slowed the progress of the Volvo Ocean Race fleet, to the point where some are running low on supplies. Ericsson 3 is projected to win the leg by 90 miles.
From Yachting World:
The slow progress has brought about a shortage in food and supplies, and a need to ration – especially for the leading boats. However, while the majority of the fleet copes with famine and bare necessities, there is a feast on board Telefonica Blue, according to skipper Bouwe Bekking. Unlike their counterparts, the Spaniards’ supplies are plentiful. In fact Bekking’s tongue in cheek reports claim that his crew are positively gorging themselves.
