Neil Hunter had a tough time. He was becalmed for the last two previous nights and this night he had up to 35 knots wind. He had three reefs in the main and no headsail and he was still doing about 7 knots. He had about 50 miles to go by the end of the day and was expecting to cross the finish line by early morning.
