The Spaniards regrouped with Camper and Puma this morning, 1.6 and 4.7 miles respectively from the boat at the 10:00 GMT position report. The entire fleet is heading northeast, with the exception of Sanya who had rig trouble while in the lead and is now heading for southern Madagascar.

“We've got through the transition zone at last. We're sailing with northeasterly breeze and we hope to be doing so for a while,” Telefonic MCM Diego Fructuoso said early this morning.
