Germany in Lead Race Place
Cuauthemoc (Mexico) remains ahead of the fleet as she approaches the course waypoint west of the Isles of Scilly with 161 miles to go but Alexander Von Humbolt II (Germany) has now taken the lead from her on corrected time and lies in first place.

2nd: Cuauhtemoc  (Mexico)
