After the doldrums shuffle Ronnie Simpson reclaims 3rd position

This last week of sailing saw many boats crossing the light winds of the doldrums. Boats arrived at speed carried by the north east trades and had to patiendly navigate through unstable light airs before hooking onto the steady south east trades. This typically causes an elastic effect with a temprary reshuffle of rankings. As of this morning Ronnie Simpson has reclaimed his third place overall in the virtual ranking, aided also by a light wind patch that engulfed Dafydd Hughes in the southern indian ocean, who struggled for progress over more than 24 hours seemingly becalmed.
