A COLLISION at the start-line between Grant Dalton's maxi New Zealand Endeavour and Pierre Fehlmann's Merit Cup broke all four spreaders on Fehlmann's mizzen mast, forcing him back into Copenhagen for repairs. He was allowed a maximum of three hours as the rest of the UAP Round Europe fleet left on the fifth leg to Helsinki. In the light south-westerly, Spain's Galicia Pescanova again led Intrum Justitia and Italy's Brooksfield in the battle for supremacy between the Whitbread 60s.
