Once again the leaders in both the Opoen 60 and 60ft trimaran classes have extended.

Over the last 24 hours Jean-Pierre Dick and Nicolas Abiven on board Virbac have increased their lead from 110 miles over Roland Jourdain and Alex Thomson on Sill yesterday at 0900 to an impressive 164 miles at the same time this morning. Groupamahas have extended, but not as much - 76 miles compared to 62miles yesterday. However in the three hulled class Michel Desjoyeaux and Herve Jan on board Geant have taken second place off Karine Fauconnier and Damian Foxall on Sergio Tacchini, the trimarans taking a more easterly route south to the Doldrums.

In the Open 60s PRB have managed to extend their lead over Sam Davies and Nick Moloney on board Team Cowes - for reasons which Sam explains on page two.

Alain Gautier and Ellen MacArthur on board Foncia are lying a disappointing 11th in the multis, 660 miles behind Groupama. They have experienced a tough 24 hours. After choosing not to sail between the Canary Islands yesterday morning as concerns grew about the inconsistency of the wind - they left the islands to port and immediately
ran out of wind. At one point yesterday afternoon they were only making 0.98 knots of speed going nowhere. They have averaged on 8 knots of boat speed in the last 24 hours compared to the 20 knot average achieved by Groupama.
