The big break by Ross Field's Yamaha in the fifth leg of the Whitbread race yesterday had stretched to over 200 miles ahead of his nearest W60 rivals, Guido Maisto in Brooksfield and Lawrie Smith in Intrum Justitia, writes Stuart Alexander. If the New Zealander can maintain even half that in the remaining 2,200 miles to Fort Lauderdale he will take a clear overall lead in the 60 class.
