Los barcos de la flota situados más al este están progresando rápidamente con vientos favorables. Se espera que una fuerte tormenta pase de norte a sur entre el Cheminées Poujoulat y sus dos perseguidores. Más atrás, el Renault Captur lucha contra vientos de cara en su ruta hacia Wellington generados por una baja presión situada entre el barco y la isla sur de Nueva Zelanda. En la parte trasera de la flota, un fuerte frente frío generará vientos de tormenta para el Spirit of Hungary.
