PETER BLAKE and Robin Knox-Johnston in the 92-foot catamaran Enza are averaging 17.62 knots and after 25 dyas are over five days ahead of schedule for completing their trip round the world in 77 days. They have covered nearly 10,000 miles at an average of 16.57 knots and hope to beat the record of 79 days 15 hours set last year by France's Bruno Peyron in Commodore Explorer.
