Fujimo is also first on the water, being close to Waypoint 2 at the time of reporting.

Russian Bermudan ketch Elena, has had an exciting day having lost and then repaired her rudder and has been able to continue racing.  

Newcomer to the Tall Ship Fleet, Nadezhda (Russia) has sadly retired following a problem with her rigging, and is heading directly to her home port of St Petersburg.

Conditions for the fleet have settled during the day, reducing to WSW of only 1knot.
