By Friday, w
ith the weather causing a few concerns, there were just three boats for Group 2’s Leg 5 start departing from Bora Bora with Kaja and Navillus 3 first across the line, shortly followed by Nusquama. 


The boats are now on their 1,050 nautical mile sail to Niue. 
he fleet have a 1,050-nautical mile sail to Niue, where they’ll spend a few days before sailing on a further 240-nautical miles to Vava’u in Tonga for a fleet rendezvous.
