Going into the second night of the double handed Transat Jacques Vabre race from Le Havre to Costa Rica , three of the British teams, Samantha Davies and Sidney Gavignet (Artemis), Mike Golding and Javier Sanso (MGYR) and Alex Thomson and Ross Daniel (Hugo Boss) were 10th, 12th and 13th in the 14-boat Open 60 fleet.

But Dee Caffari and Brian Thompson (Aviva) were continuing to build on a good start, lying fourth, five miles behind the leaders and defending champion Michel Desjoyeaux, paired with Jeremie Beyou (Foncia).

In Nice, Britain's Origin team was again shorebound by unstable winds in the Louis Vuitton Trophy series. Emirates Team New Zealand, which has an automatic place in the final anyway, is leading, unbeaten with three wins.
