"These the things you only really see when you're out here in the middle of the ocean. It's a nice reminder as well of how important it is is that we're spreading our message of sustainability and keeping the oceans clean and preserving nature,” said navigator Simon Fisher.
Vestas is tied for second in the overall standings and expect to arrive in Hong Kong late next week.
The race comes to the U.S. with the only North American stopover in Newport from May 8-20, 2018.
