JUNE 7: PROSTATEBLOG NZ: Being the southern-most boat may be costing NZ entry Rowing For Prostate a chance of third placing in the Indian Ocean Rowing Race.
As the leading four boats head into the last third of the marathon row to Mauritius, the women (Pura Vida) edged back into third with a margin of more than 30 miles as their battle with the Prostate boys continues.
Pura Vida has been heading north in the wake of leaders Bexhill Trust, who remain more than 100 miles in front of the eights, Aud Eamus.
The latter is eating away at the bexhill lead, however, gaining about 15 miles in the last day.
The NZ boat is the furthest south of the leaders and that may be costing them.
