Oct 16, 2014: Leg 1. Day 4. The fleet is off the Western coast of Africa but all still within eyesight of each other. There's no time to rest, physically or mentally. It's an all out sprint to the Doldrums.

In Episode 4, racing is still amazingly close. Genny speaks to a bruised Tony Rae from Team Vestas Wind - “a tough cookie”, Martin Strömberg and Wolf call in from Dongfeng Race Team, currently in the lead. Published on Oct 16, 2014.
