A Good Start of Leg 2

Now 4 days into the Leg 2 and ALL boats are still sailing in the Volvo Ocean Race! So we can say that the start of Leg 2 is better  than in Leg 1. 

Camper searching for the better winds

Tracking the VOR boats is made easy this time with a nice and detailed tracker. 
The boats are today still very close together and mostly sailing East. Benefiting from the Northerly winds. The big question will be , When to turn North?   I think that some boats will be using the stealth mode to surprise the competition and maybe  even wait for the night time. 

The Virtual boats are sailing closer to Madagascar and the first boats have reached the SE point of Madagascar. I expect them to turn north and enjoy the eastern winds, though there is an area of calm wind NE of Madagascar as well.
