Skipper Dee Caffari and Turn the Tide on Plastic came out of Stealth Mode at the Friday 19:00 UTC position report.Turn the Tide on Plastic -

Turn the Tide on Plastic was in seventh and last place, and most westerly positioned when they went into stealth mode.

Their position was 69 nm behind race leader, Dongfeng, and 15 nm behind sixth placed Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag and 46 nm off fifth placed Team Brunel.

When they reappeared at the Friday 19:00 UTC position report they were 103 nm behind race leader Dongfeng, but had closed slightly on Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag, who are the most westerly boat.
