Uniquely Singapore at the start of Race 6 P2028453 lr

* Uniquely Singapore maintains lead over Cape Breton Island
* Hull & Humber feels the benefit of Gulf Stream current
* Teams anticipate strengthening winds

After the inevitable frustrations of the very light conditions of the past few days, over the last 24 hours the conditions have changed to produce some fantastic downwind sailing and, with the forecast for the next 24 hours showing the winds strengthening, the race to New York is on. The nervous tension in the skippers’ reports to the Race Office this morning is almost palpable as the end game to Race 10 plays out.
