Volvo Ocean Race: Puma's lead cut by rivals with thrilling match race looming - Telegraph: "Spinnakers have been hoisted and speeds are expected to rise as the fleet rides the trade winds though as to whether the leaderboard will change significantly is anyone’s guess. “Personally I don’t think that from here we’re going to see vast differences in the boats, so we’ll probably see these first three boats stick closely with each other,” said Camper skipper Chris Nicholson. “I think we are very competitive -- we certainly don’t have an issue in the tight reaching. “This was a course that could have been extremely difficult for us with regards to a lot of jib reaching and it hasn’t been the case so far.” The tight reaching conditions are not suiting Groupama who are trailing PUMA by more than 100 miles."
