For the ones that are not following, a strong recommendation, don't miss it, the race has been great. Now for the first time the leaders, the duo Hardy/ Ruyant, have managed some advance (18.5 miles) and are pursued by Simon/Lagraviere that have Marchand/Loison at 28 miles.
These are all top young sailors and we all remember on last Vendee the great performance of Thomas Ruyant sailing his very broken IMOCA to safety: he did not want to lose the boat because he knew he would have difficulty in finding another sponsor or another boat. Remember that great story here:
The ladies, on Team work, are sailing at 10th place at about 110 miles from the leader. They are also great sailors and the best women solo sailors from the new generation. Clarisse is also racing but she has yet a lot to learn to reach the level of Justine and Isabelle. Clarisse is teaming with a man, a good sailor, Le Turquais and is 14th at 155 miles.
