For the Mirpuri Foundation boat “Turn the Tide on Plastic”, estimated time of arrival in Lisbon is tomorrow, the 28th, around 10 p.m, at Doca de Pedrouços, Volvo Ocean Race Village.
They’re on the final stretch, but it’s still a good 24 hours before the finish line will be in sight.
All seven teams have made the turn at Porto Santo North, a virtual mark, or waypoint, added as a mark of the course that the boats were required to leave to starboard.
With the waypoint in their wake, the fleet is now free to plot their own course to the finishing line, as of 03:30 UTC, still some 340 nautical miles away.
The forecast is for easing winds near the finishing line.
