IMOCA Open 60 – Vendée Globe – Day 46 – merging of the fleet


The slack conditions over the South Pacific have led to further mergings within the fleet yesterday, and this with a high-pressure system moving concurrently in the same direction …. It remains exciting! —– Yannik Bestaven FRA (Mau00eetre Coq) is leading now 49nm ahead of Charlie Dalin FRA (Apivia). The backlog of the pursuer group led by Thomas Ruyant FRA (LinkedOut) has grown to 219nm, but the ranks 4 (Benjamin Dutreux FRA, OMIA, Non-Foiler) to 8 (Isabelle Joschke FRA/GER, MASCF, Foiler) are down to just 10nm! —– The racetracker and the reports.
