    • April 24,2015. Leg 6 to Newport onboard Team Alvimedica. Day 05. Nervous times on the bow for Charlie Enright (L) and Will Oxley (R) while drifting north,wondering how the entire fleet has fared 40 miles to the east. A clear split has developed as a midnight tack to the north puts Alvimedica in a stretch of ocean all their own while the rest of the fleet continued east for several hours before eventually turning north themselves.
