It’s the final duel between Sébastien Pebelier on the 787-Decosail and Irina Gracheva on the 800 who are ahead by a nautical mile and a half and speed ahead at 4.5 knots, less than 20 nautical miles from the finish.
Four nautical miles away to the south-west Pierre le Roy’s 1019-BigBounce is side to side with the first Series, Léo Debiesse’s 966-Les Alphas followed by the 950-Porsche François Champion. Sixteen boats have succeeded in rounding the western buoy of the Chaussée de Sein, many more are still working round it. At this rate the first ones are expected just before midnight, with the main group arriving at dawn.
1016, 903 and 871 have retired from the race.
