For the Seafarers: 

* ELLEN MACARTHUR & ALAIN GAUTIER tough 24 hours...after choosing not to sail between the Canary Islands yesterday morning as concerns grew about the inconsistency of the wind - Foncia left the islands to port and immediately ran out of wind. At one point yesterday afternoon the 60-foot multihull was only making 0.98 knots of speed going nowhere. MacArthur and Gautier were averaging 7 knots of boat speed in the last 24 hours compared to 20 knots average by current leader Groupama.
