Hugo Boss climbs back up to 5th place.
Alex and Andy on board Hugo Boss are now well clear of Gibraltar, out of the fickle calm of the Mediterranean and are heading for the Canaries.
They have had some pretty calm weather but its set to ramp up later today when they are forecast up to 40k from the S.W. which means its straight on the nose!
Could be a nasty few days. Those waters down to the Canaries are notoriously uncomfortable in a blow. I remember feeling like I had spent 6 days in a washing machine when we finally made landfall at Lanzarote. At least I could stop there for a rest but these guys will just be ploughing on through, racing all the way....merde!
