Great racing by Groupama, Telefonica and also by Abu Dhabi that is following Telefonica. It seems to me that Telefonica and Abu Dhabi, more to the North are in a better position. They all have to turn North the question would be when.

Only Camper has given up to follow Groupama lead and had already turned North. Don't think it is going to work.

Next 12 hours will be very interesting with several options, more to the South, more to the North, before going North. It has not only to do with wind pressure but also with wind direction. I hope we will see different strategies. Puma would be the one that would gain more in not follow Groupama since it as already lost 41 miles and needs to recover them.
