Have some Dutch influence from my wife, and with Burling onboard and the home port advantage it would have to be Brunel.
It has been such fantastic coverage with the drones onboard, watching those boats flying thru the Southern ocean has been a treat.
Go Yellow !

I feel like mapfre has more often than not been the quickest boat and deserves the win overall. Plus normally when burling and tuke win stuff the media focussed on burling. Would be good to see tuke get a turn in the spotlight for a change.

Despite all the detractors that seem to be out there, I still think this is an awesome race to watch. Yes there are pros and cons, but to me it's still an exciting race to follow. Great footage, plenty of drama and a close contest.

Neck & neck between DongFeng & Mapfre - around 180nm downwind leg in approaching 30kn of breeze, going to be a hard night for them all!

Yellow 7 miles behind already.  Ouch.

 

That's gonna hurt when it looks like it could turn into a drag race.

I also wondered that, originally they were talking in the order of 700nm, now around 900nm.

Added distance so hopefully they finish midday Sunday

Or so the fly by is during a certain time

I can't remember which it is, don't really care as it will be at the wrong time for me to watch it either way
