Strategy for the End sprint in Volvo Ocean Race Leg 5.

Puma and Groupama are in a close battle for the lead in Leg 5 , Volvo Ocean Race with some 1000 Nm to go to Itajai, Brazil.

The last days has seen many lead changes where one time Groupama is in the lead only to be passed by Puma again. These two however have to be careful as Telefonica, that made a 17 hrs repair stop at Cape Horn, has in last days reduced the difference from 400+ Nm upto 70 Nm.
This for sure makes them  a candidate for the leg win again.

Coming days will be a  nice close battle and it is not at all sure who will  be the winner.
