Volvo Ocean Race - Inside Track: Leg 4 # 11 - Feb 23, 2015: Doldrums? What doldrums? Or more importantly, where!?! The teams raced through what should have been light winds but are now caught in the matrix of storms at the end of the 1000 mile long tropical clouds! Tightest racing yet this leg!!!

Feb 23, 2015: Leg 4 to Auckland. Day 15. Thunder and rain is paving the way to Auckland, and a nail-biting situation looms on the horizon. In this tropical mess and with every team within less than 20nm, every metre is a battle.
Tuesday the Horn and Invercargill: "Leaders Cheminées Poujoulat continue to make excellent progress towards Cape Horn with about 640 miles to sail. They have SSE'ly winds - slightly awkwardly. They will reach Cape Horn in 25-30kts of SW'ly which will carry Bernard Stamm and Jean Le Cam past in good conditions and allow them to pass directly close to Staten Island."
