As the front is approaching the fleet is being lifted more, except for Brunel for now so they are extending their lead more. Windspeed 35-40+

It may get worse too. A front is coming through (Scallywag has already been through it), and snow, 40-45 knot winds, and building seas will feature.

Afterwards, the boats can expect near 30 knots until they get caught by one final system before Cape Horn.

The forecast for the rounding of the famed Horn, on Thursday (UTC) is currently heinous.
