Witt’s advantage reduced
A change in pressure overnight resulted in Supermaxi SHK Scallywag’s 2019 Antigua Bermuda Race advantage being reduced.
The race leader, skippered by Australian David Witt, came to a grinding halt and watched the rest of the fleet close the gap until they too lost the breeze.
Behind the leader, teams are still using their own strategies to maximise performance and get through the light air and make it to the fresh breeze north.
SHK Scallywag did eventually manage to get back in the right breeze, making 15 knots of boat speed, with 400 miles to go to the finish.
Afansay Isaev’s Maxi Weddell was approximately 100 miles behind the leader, while the rest of the chasing pack were enjoying tight racing with only 18 miles of separation between the next five boats of Esprit de Corps IV, Pata Negra, Maremosso, Challenger and Raucous.
