DESCRIPTION
The fleet has finally come out of the Doldrums where flat sea, hot temperature and a lack of wind left it languishing for days. As the wind picked up again, the race re-started and the scoreboard re-shuffled, with Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag now leading by 70 miles, charging towards home port of Hong Kong.

In this week's summary we look at:
-- The transition from quiet conditions into trade winds
-- Equator crossing ceremony for rookies
-- Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag conquering leading position
