Ultime Trimaran – Brest-Atlantiques – Brest FRA – Day 14, Sodebo looses port rudder, repair stop in Capetown


After two weeks racing, the four Ultime Trimarans are approaching Cape Town to be reached by Thursday in winds substantially lighter South of the St-Helena anticyclone. Edmond de Rotschild with Franck Cammas/Charles Caudrelier FRA is still leading now with a 100nm advantage on Macif (François Gabart/Gwenolé Gahinet FRA). After the repair stops of these two teams, it is the turn of Sodebo who lost the port rudder after a collision with flotsam. A repair stop has been planned in Cape Town. On rank 3 is therefore now Actual with Yves Le Blevec FRA/Axel Pella ESP 330nm behind the leader. —– The race tracker, the news and the videos.
