Ultime Trimaran – Brest-Atlantiques – Brest FRA – Day 2 – chasing down South at speeds around 30 to 40kn

After the rough start day with the crossing of the Bay of Biscay – here the video of the start – the wind has faded and the foils are now in full effect. With a average speed of over 30kn and peaks above 40kn, the four Ultime Multihulls have already passed Madeira. New at the top is Edmond De Rothschild with Franck Cammas FRA, first to gibe south. 46nm back is Macif with François Gabart FRA and Sodebo (Thomas Coville FRA) is 69nm behind. Only Actual (Yves Le Blevec FRA) 165nm in arrear has lost some distance, mainly due to the slow passage of Cape Finisterre with a halt in a calm zone. —– Have a look at the daily produced onboard videos to get a feeling about live at an 80kmh speed on the Atlantic.
