Butlletí del 22/02/2015

Una considerable tempesta del Sud està afectant el Cheminées Poujoulat, líder de la regata, amb vents de temporal dur i ones gegants. En segon i tercer lloc, el Neutrogena i el GAES Centros Auditivos estan ben posicionats per encadenar vents forts i planar sobre les ones. Els vents lleugers continuen incomodant als vaixells al voltant i al sud de Nova Zelanda, mentre que el Spirit of Hungary cavalca sobre un fort front fred cap a l'est.
