The light winds and the strong tide current make the course very challenging. —– This morning UTC, the fleet was still very close together with Gildas Mahé FRA leading 0,1nm ahead of Pierre Leboucher FRA, and another 0,1nm back Adrien Hardy FRA on 3rd. Justine Mettraux SUI, 10th overall as best woman, follows on rank 26 with a 2,1nm backlog. —– The race tracker, the news and the video of the start.
