Archipelago Raid: Swedes lead the fleet

Photo: Thierry Martinez Sea&Co"Swedish Team Thule Strandberg/Örtendahl is increasing their lead doing 18 knots of boat speed in the strong southerly breeze. The wind has picked up since the start this morning and is averaging on 20 knots. Some boats have capsized due to the fairly rough conditions. Among them Team Audi Lewander/Thorslund and Team Blue Humphreys/Crawford that spent some time recuperating afterwards but then came back in the race. Team Mc Donald Huysman and team w4 also went on the nose. The fleet is now reduced with another two boats and 21 boats are now in the race. Conditions are again fantastic, good breeze, sunny and clear – what else could you ask for?"
