IMOCA Open 60 - Barcelona World Race - Barcelona ESP - Day 8

The leading four boats have passed the Cape Verde Islands during the last night in a well-established trade wind.
 IMOCA Open 60 - Barcelona World Race - Barcelona ESP - Day 8
Different strategies cause frequent position changes, and this morning, 'Neutrogena' (Guillermo Altadill ESP/José Munoz CHI) has taken the lead for the first time 12 miles ahead of 'Cheminées Poujoulat' with Bernard Stamm SUI/Jean Le Cam FRA. The long-time leader 'Hugo Boss' with Alex Thomson GBR/Pepe Ribes ESP lost some distance opting for the most westerly route and is now on the 5th place. But having accelerated to a 21 kn average speed, 5 kn faster as the direct opponents, she is coming back strongly from behind. The situation remains exciting, and at the earliest, the passage of the innertropical convergence zone during the coming weekend might provoke some major changes.
