Meanwhile the Nautor Challenge shore crew are looking to arrange to have Amer Sports Too shipped to France as soon after her arrival as possible.
The positions show a slight concertinaing of the fleet since the same time yesterday when Assa Abloy were 14 miles astern of race leaders illbruck and djuice 64 miles behind.
As usual illbruck is in their normal position - at the front of the fleet in the middle of the race course. Assa Abloy and Tyco are slightly to the north while the remaining boats are to the south.
Between systems, the wind is expected to veer from the south west to the north west and drop off to variable force 2-3. However at present there is a shallow low south south of Newfoundland and another major low is expected over Nova Scotia on Friday night, unfortunately coinciding with Amer Sports Too approaching the Canadian coast.
