Ultime Trimaran – Brest-Atlantiques – Brest FRA – Day 24 – Actual and Macif to swap positions today

As reported yesterday, Edmond de Rothschild (Cammas/Caudrelier FRA) was crossing the innertropical convergence zone and is this morning UTC already in the northern trade winds, progressing at speeds above 30kn. Her advance on rank two has grown on 635nm. Actual (Leblevec FRA/Pella ESP) was still on the 2nd position but the strategic detour to West of Macif (Gabart/Gahinet FRA) seems work, as in a fresher breeze and with a more powerful wind angle, she is over 5kn faster as Actual and her backlog was down on 20nm this morning. —– The race tracker, the news – all teams suffer from the heat – and the videos.
