The Race - 1030 - 3/3/01
Innovation Explorer is travelling more quickly at 23 knots and has closed to 919 miles of the leader. She has covered 556 miles in the last 24 hours, but nothing short of catastrophe is going to take the lead off Grant Dalton and his Club Med team now.
More than 5000 miles behind, Team Adventure is passing the Argentinian coast, while back at the bottom of the world Warta-Polpharma is encountering winds of 85 knots. Tony Bullimore is one man who might actually envy Warta-Polpharma, sitting as he is in a Southern Ocean doldrums. He has covered just 77.5 miles in the last 24-hour period, an average speed of 3.2 knots.
