* Yachts line up for sprint to the scoring gate
* "Six teams in with a chance" of taking gate points, says Uniquely
Singapore skipper
* Hull & Humber crew to begin preparing boat for departure

On your marks, get set for the race to the scoring gate. If you take a
look at the race viewer on www.clipperroundtheworld.com you will see the
yachts lined up like sprinters in the starting blocks, poised to fly
down the track. The distance to finish figures belie how close the eight
ocean racing boats are to the scoring gate at 55 degrees east and the
curvature of the earth is not apparent on the map. With approximately
500 nm to the gate, the next two days will make for thrilling racing and
the points to be won could go to any of the eight leading teams.
