Veritas CIV

Today's Truth: 
Virbac Paprec 3 is still 373 miles from the east extremity of the Crozet gate at 0500hrs UTC this morning and their prospects don’t look to have improved any in terms of the nasty low which is going to be hitting that point by Tuesday night.
Virbac Paprec 3’s lead is at 582 miles this morning over MAPFRE. The Spanish duo is sailing the much more direct course to the gate in more favorable breeze, and their gains have been consistent against the leaders who have been sailing fast but on a classic loop south and north between the last gate and this Crozet gate.
