<p>The first days were relatively calm. According to the organizers of the race, yachtsmen do not yet experience great difficulties in promoting their distance, breakdowns or serious technical malfunctions, none of the participants, although several yachts did not avoid minor injuries. Last night, leaving behind a high pressure zone, the riders plunged into the southeast wind flows that will accompany them until they exit the Bay of Biscay. It is assumed that the leaders of the proto division will go round Cape Finister already in the first half of Tuesday.</p>
<p>The fleet is currently stretching for approximately 80 miles. At the same time, the leaders of both divisions go pretty close to each other: Axel Trehin (Axel Trehin) and Ambrigio Beccaria (Ambrigio Beccaria) now share only about 20 miles. Russian participants in the regatta are held in the middle of the fleet. It can be assumed that the picture of the race will become clearer on Tuesday, when yachtsmen go to the coast of Portugal and will be picked up by a new, northerly wind blowing along the coast.</p>
