La alta presión situada sobre Nueva Zelanda hace que el Renault Captur progrese lento, con vientos flojos, hacia el Norte en su camino a Wellington para hacer las reparaciones. Se espera que el anticiclón se mueva hacia el Este, lo que hará que la intensidad del viento aumente para Riechers y Audigane, pero tendrán vientos del Norte, de ceñida. Por otra parte, el viento es favorable para el resto de la flota, incluyendo al Spirit of Hungary, al que le afectará una intensa borrasca al sur de Australia.
