Thanks Jonh,

Guys, it seems that I got it right, while the others are pointing to Madeira, Groupama is going to pass near Canary Islands. Also as I thought, Groupama is losing distance for the others but it seems that they saw it right and that situation I was talking about regarding an advantage in 48h is going to start in about 12h. The Madeira group will have no wind and Groupama will have plenty wind.

As I said, if it works out would be brilliant.

For the ones that don't found out and want to know what I am talking about, go to here:

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-2012 | Race Data Center

On the top right click on the clouds and then, (top right) set the weather forecast for + 12h and you will see what I am talking about.

Regards

Paulo
