Two weather fronts with winds of up to 40kn have been crossed so far during the race. The approach to the northern waypoint on the Polar Circle continuous now in calmer waters. —– With a western course, Jérémy Béyou FRA (Charal) and Charlie Dahlin FRA (Apivia) managed to overtake the previous leader Thomas Ruyant FRA (LinkedOut) yesterday, who is now 30 miles behind the top duo. Samantha Davis GBR (Initiatives Coeur), ??who has moved up to fourth place, came up strongly as well. Boris Herrmann GER (SeaExplorer) and Isabelle Joschke FRA/GER (MASCF) follow 9 miles behind.
