Volvo Ocean Race: Close Encounters

  • Mon, 13 Nov 2017 12:45

(November 12, 2017; Leg 2, Day 8) – For the first time since early in Leg 2, less than 60 miles separate first from last with the Doldrums having the expected effect on the fleet of the 2017/18 Volvo Ocean Race. Dongfeng Race Team retains the lead in Leg 2 of the Volvo Ocean Race, but only just, as the leaders slow in Doldrums conditions. Less than 10 miles separate first from fourth, and the difference between first and worst is scarcely 55 miles, good news for the back markers, who are back in the game…
