Let the record show, no snow fell on the Equator yesterday. New Zealand sailor Graham Dalton finished his eight-month solo voyage around the planet, a trip that relied heavily on pluck rather than luck. Dalton arrived in Bilboa, Spain, about 9 a.m. EDT, a month after the winner of the Velux 5 Oceans race crossed the finish line. Although he was disqualified in Norfolk, Va., for falling behind the race schedule, Dalton vowed to press on to keep his promise to his late son Anthony Graham Dalton, who died of cancer in 2005.

CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- After racing each other over the Atlantic Ocean for 7,350 nautical miles, the second and third finishers in the opening leg of the Whitbread Round the World yacht race arrived here yesterday just less than two hours apart.Monaco's Merit Cup took second place, arriving 30 days, 12 hours, 20 minutes and 11 seconds after setting out from Southampton, England, on Sept. 21. Just 109 minutes later, Norway's Innovation Kvaerner crossed the finish line at the harbor mouth.

With the heady first few days of the Whitbread a week behind them, skippers and crews are beginning to look ahead to the Doldrums, a strategically important belt of light, unpredictable winds near the Equator.During the past couple of days, the leaders have been sailing in lighter winds and the rest of the 10-boat fleet has been slowly gaining, with Chessie Racing moving solidly into 4th place ahead of Silk Cut (Britain)."We obviously lost a bit to the boats behind, and it's now a very close race in the front [of the fleet]

EF Language, with American skipper Paul Cayard, has started to pull away from the fleet in the Whitbread Round the World Race for the Volvo Trophy as the yachts turn from a remote island in the western South Atlantic toward Cape Town, South Africa, still more than 2,000 miles away.Innovation Kvaerner (Norway), which had led since the fleet was off the Bay of Biscay in the Northern Hemisphere, has fallen to third place, close behind Merit Cup (Monaco). Silk Cut (Britain) is fourth, about 216 miles behind the leader, and Chessie Racing (Maryland)
