Veritas CXXXV

Today's Truth:  This evening race leaders Virbac-Paprec 3 are just 40 miles from Tangier, at the entrance to the Straits of Gibraltar.

Currently heading on a north, slightly westerly course as they tack through light airs off the Moroccan coast, Jean-Pierre Dick and Loick Peyron (FRA) have the Rock of Gibraltar in their sights, with MAPFRE 281 miles behind.

In third place Renault Z.E. have crept 70 miles closer to the leader over the past 24 hours, and at 14 knots this evening seem to have crossed the front into better pressure. Behind them in fourth Estrella Damm are also making good speeds, but less confident that they will be able to capitalize on the better pressure.
