Commentary

The IRL version of this leg will go down in history as the roughest and saddest ever. John Fisher from Team Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag fell overboard and was never recovered. Our thoughts are with John Fisher's family, friend's, and teammates. RIP John.

With a nice dc-able race start in open water north of Auckland at 01:00 UTC (in the middle of the night for Europeans) it immediately turned into a very tough competition to round Cape Colville as fast as possible and then turn south towards the strong winds.
This race had its southern boundary at 70°S, but most of the fleet didn't even reach 60°S, as the "Westerly Stormtrack" kept us north of that.
And what a Stormtrack!
With boat speeds sometimes reaching more than 35 kts the fleet literately flew towards the epic rounding of Cape Horn, followed by the big decision of how to tackle the Falkland Islands. Left, right or in between? Later proven, "right" was the right decision, at least for "limesinferior"
As always, The Falklands claimed its victims in terms of quite a few BBQ's. Approaching Itajai we witnessed a ferocious fight for the win. "limesinferior" took victory after 16 days, 4 hours, 56 minutes, and 16 seconds at sea.
The podium finished within 10 seconds, top ten within 33 seconds and top twenty within 1 minute, 4 seconds, absolutely amazing after 7.100 NM of racing.
