From Alicante, now it’s Lisbon en route Cape Town. Next is Melbourne and then Guangzhou before Hong Kong. From the Chinese territory, next is Auckland, then Itajai, then Newport before Cardiff.

However in the overall VOC standings, Team Vestas are the leaders, MAPFRE, Dongfeng, AkzoNobel, Scallywag, Brunel and then Turn The Tide On Plastic follow in that order.
