2009 Sydney-Hobart Yacht Race - IX

Under 40 NM to run.

Alfa Romeo has turned to west on waypoint at Tasman Island doing 13 knots. Two waypoints to go, passing Port Arthur now. Wild Oats 18 miles back , Leopard is 32 miles behind Alfa. Neither is currently a threat, but in yacht racing till that finish line is crossed, never ever count your chickens.

Next bunch is 68 miles behind and is really stretching out, gaining ground. Only one straggler has yet to make Eden, most are well into Bass Strait. Wind looks steady at present.
