After the first night

After the first long, cold night, the fleet stretches from the Glénans to Sein island, over sixty nautical miles. No changes to note  with the course leader. Tartine the prototype 975 skippered by Fabio Muzzolini holds first place with a small lead – 4 short miles –  over Hugo Dhallenne skipper of the series  979 YC Saint Lunaire. They’re followed by  Numerobis – 787, the prototype sailed  by  Nolwenn Pébelier. A few miles further we find Jean-Marie Jézéquel on the  1016-Branchet-KPL and  Anne-Claire Le Berre’s 1005-Millenium.

Around  10 miles after the  first prototype, Emmanuel Renaud’s  753-Aventure Océan marks  the rear  of the first group, which numbers ten boats. They might be close to the finish line, now  less than 40 miles away, but the competitors will soon slow down with the wind dropping. They will need patience before they can enjoy the hot meal served on their return. They also need to be careful with the tide whose range is 108 this afternoon.
