They're Back

Day 64 - Hugo Boss has put on a remarkable performance over the last 24 hours, taking advantage of difficult conditions that are slowing the race leader Paprec-Virbac 2. Over the past day, second-place Hugo Boss has taken a full 179 miles out of the 800 mile lead Paprec-Virbac had painstakingly built over the first two months of the race.“We had a great night with really favourable conditions, perfect for the boat, and up over 20 knots for quite a while. I think we averaged 18 knots for the night,” Hugo Boss co-skipper Andrew Cape told us. “It helps a lot when you’re going 120 miles in one night, that’s for sure.” -http://www.barcelonaworldrace.com/
