Plenty of breeze and hundreds of thousands of eyeballs for the 92-boat Route Du Rhum fleet as they head to Cap Frehel into some brisk weather. Watch the highlights above, and eyes on the thread for weather, analysis, links, videos and everything else the Anarchists can find. We’re pushing the organizers to make the full replay available worldwide – it’s gorgeous coverage, and well worth watching – even if you don’t speak French.
UPDATE: Our old friend Alessandro Di Bendetto draws first blood in the race to update the fans with onboard video. Check it.
