Volvo 65 - Volvo Ocean Race 2014/15 - Leg 4 - Day 10

After a few days in stable trade winds direction New Zealand, the VOR fleet is now reaching the innertropical convergence zone, the doldrums, and herewith probably the most critical part of leg 4.

 The leading 'Brunel' (Bouwe Bekking NED) is already in slackening winds, and the advance on 'Abu Dhabi' (Ian Walker GBR) of 57 miles will most probably melt away in the coming days. Among the winners of the day was the all-female 'SCA' team with Samantha Davies GBR with the fastest speed on their northern route. They overtook 'Dongfeng' (Charles Caudrelier FRA) and are now 5th but still with a 109 miles' deficit on the leader. The group on the ranks 2 to 4 however is only 20 miles ahead of the women.
