Camper: Some difficult choices ahead
With the fleet having rounded Recife on the north eastern corner of Brazil the teams now have a 3000 nm downwind drag race through the Caribbean Sea ahead of them. CAMPER skipper Chris Nicholson says that with the plenty of downwind sailing ahead and consistent trade wind conditions finally kicking in spirits are high aboard. “We know that we’re very competitive in running conditions and there’s plenty of that coming up. There’s really nothing in at the moment between us and Puma so if we can just continue chipping away at their lead as we have been we will be in good shape.
