The Islanders are still eight miles ahead of Team Hallin Marine, as the leading boats take advantage of an easterly wind to head south of the Isle of Wight. No news yet this morning from Oarsome Adventures on whether they have managed to repair the watermaker. Oarsome Adventures are currently off Newhaven, 14 miles ahead of Pure Gym, who are approaching Beachy Head. Savoir Faire are on the move near Rye and the Coast Girls will be on the anchor off Herne Bay for another couple of hours until the tide turns. With almost 48 hours gone, the fleet is spread over 125 miles.
