            With the front-runners now passing due south of St Helena Island in good breeze, it?s been a spectacular first half for these boats, who are now starting the slow turn down around the south Atlantic high and aiming at last for Rio.

            What an inspiration and thrill it must be for the young crews aboard yachts like JM Busha, Rotary Scout, Haspa Hamburg and Zulu Girl to see just how quickly the two big trimarans have covered the first half of the race course! Remember, both these trimaran teams have been...

            Where to start today? With two distinct groups on the water it?s difficult to give a single overview, so once again I will cover the two groups separately.

            But before that one just has to stand back in awe at the sheer speed and distance covered by the two big dogs, ?Maserati? and ?Love Water? as they are stripping miles off the chart quicker than a marauding gamefish strips line off a reel!

            ?Love Water? has covered 1110nm since the start and ?Maserati? 1072nm ? all this in less than 48 hours at sea. That?s shunting as the last tracker ?ping? showed them doing 19.7 knots and 20.5 knots respectively and still heading towards the 20S line of latitude. To really put this...

It?s not as if a position change will happen quickly, and could take many hours or even a day or two.
