Azzam had Good Sailing in 2nd half Leg7

Leg7 in the Volvo Ocean Race, has seen many different Boats in the lead one passing the other. Azzam however showed a very strong strategy in the 2nd half of the TransAtlantic leg. 
However, a ridge of calm winds ahead of Lisbon has made the Fleet to compact to 25 Nm this morning. 

So depending on how quick a Boat can pass this area of low winds and pick up the Northerly stronger winds, the better the  chances on a good Podium place in Lisbon. 

The sailing race tracker is now already in the rapid update mode, with each minute a refresh of boat locations and speed indication.

The expected Finish in Lisbon is late Today Thursday 31 May or early tomorrow. The Finish is expected to be close as the weather along the coast of Portugal can bring some surprises localy.
