Next stop is Cape Verde

Given the expected strong support winds in the Strait of Gibraltar, it is likely that the racing yachts will only need about five days for the first stage. “Whoever reaches the trade winds first has a good chance of winning the stage,” said Boris Herrmann. After a short stop in Cape Verde, the race will continue on January 25 with the second stage to Cape Town.
