Petersen had less than 200 miles to the finish. Unfortunately the wind was right on the nose and he had to tack. As he mentioned in his email yesterday he had a thousand or more dolphins playing in his view. Wherever he looked, he could see them jumping.

Neil Hunter still had about 1000 miles to go. He was working his way up inshore of the Falkland Islands, expecting to reach Punta by mid to late next week.
