Lighter Winds Slow Smaller Vessels

Lighter Winds Slow Smaller Vessels

Thirtreen vessels have now crossed the finish line; seventeen are still racing; one has retired - Creidne (Ireland).  Moosk (UK) and Zawisza Czarny (Poland) will not start the race because of mechanical problems which are being fixed in A Coruna.

Following the Class A's fast finishing times, the decreasing winds are slowing the smaller vessels as they approach the finish line. Those vessels that have already crossed the finish line are likely to hold their good provisional placings.

The current race positions on corrected time are:

Class A
1st: Cuauhtemoc  (Mexico) FINISHED

2nd: Alexander Von Humboldt II (Germany) FINISHED

3rd: Fryderyk Chopin (Poland) FINISHED

Class B

1st: Kapitan Borchard (Poland)

2nd: Johanna Lucretia (UK)

3rd: Maybe (UK)

Class C
1st: Dar Szczecina (Poland) FINISHED

2nd: St Iv (Estonia)

3rd: Spaniel (Latvia) FINISHED
Class D
1st: Akela (Russia)

2nd: Tomidi (Belgium) FINSHED

3rd: Gigi FINISHED
