For Boris Herrmann (GER) and Ryan Breymaier (USA) on Neutrogena this evening brought a satisfaction the rookie duo would surely never have expected just a few days ago, of becoming the fourth boat to cross Cook Strait in the Barcelona World Race, passing Wellington at 1845hrs.
Although the gains were expected as soon as the announcement of first Groupe Bel, then Estrella Damm’s pauses in Wellington for repairs came to light, the jump to fourth place overall will be no less special, as they begin their Southern Hemisphere day around 100 miles behind Renault Z.E. in third.
