Ultime Trimaran – Brest-Atlantiques – Brest FRA – Day 10, rankings reshuffled


Extraordinary weather conditions over the South Atlantic provoked an overthrow in the rankings yesterday. The four Ultime Trimarans were separated by 80nm only this morning UTC, practically a restart of the race ! —– A powerful depression arriving from the continent South of Rio de Janeiro with winds above 40kn prompted the leading Sodebo to head North for safety reasons, and the other teams – including Macif back in the race after the repair stop – remained North of the low pressure system as well. —– Edmond de Rothschild of Franck Cammas/Charles Caudrelier FRA reclaimed the lead 18nm ahead of Sodebo (Thomas Coville/Jean-Luc Nélias FRA). Another 4nm behind followed Macif (François Gabart/Gwenolé Gahinet FRA). —– The race tracker, the news and the videos.
