Butlletí del 01/03/2015

El líder de la regata, el Cheminées Poujoulat, continua aprofitant el vent oest tant com pugui. Està enganxat a un fort vent del SW entre l'anticicló que es mou cap a l'est enfront de la costa sud-americana i les borrasques que es mouen al llarg dels 40ºS i 50ºS de l'Atlàntic Sud. El Neutrogena i el GAES Centros Auditivos estan enfrontant certes condicions de cenyida mentre intenten abandonar la zona del cap d'Hornos i deixar enrere les illes Malvines. Darrere d'ells, el We Are Water, el One Planet, One Ocean & Pharmaton, i el Renault Captur estan negociant vent fort i condicions molt dures de mar al voltant d'una tempesta del Pacífic Sud. Finalment, el Spirit of Hungary està alentit a la sortida de Nova Zelanda per una gran alta pressió que els separa del vent de component oest més al sud, al llarg del límit de la zona d'exclusió antàrtica.
