Wakey wakey rise and shine! It's been a good morning for team AkzoNobel, whose decision to take an inside line on the approach to the Lizard paid dividends – they are now leading the fleet as the sun rises on the boats for the first time in the 2017-18 edition.
The fleet is still grouped close together, and are currently passing Lizard Point – famous in sailing as the end point for all transatlantic records – but for this lot, it's just the start.
So, what next? Well, Land's End is in the distance, and once chalked off, the teams will make their approach to the Scilly Isles.
The only issue? A huge TSS (Traffic Separation Scheme) that the boats must stay out of, is smack bang in the middle of exactly where they'd like to race. Typical! Also, the wind will shut off in the coming hours around the Scilly Isles
The fleet will now fight their way through the calms and upwind into the Celtic Sea, with an ETA of Fastnet Rock still looking likely for Tuesday morning.
