In addition to Thomas Ruyant FRA (LinkedOut), who improved to 3rd place, Maxime Sorel FRA (V and B Mayenne) was also one of the winners of the day: Joining the chasing group as 8th, he was only 80nm behind 3rd place this morning UTC. Also continuing to advance were the two co-favorites Armel Tripon FRA (LOccitane) and Jérémy Béyou FRA (Charal), who had to stop for repairs shortly after the start: Armel Tripon FRA, with 21kn this morning the fastest, is now 13th, but still 1100nm behind. Jérémy Béyou FRA, who started the race 9 days late after the repair return, is also coming strongly from behind, holding now rank 18 with a 2600nm backlog this morning. 400nm ahead of Charal in 17th place is the 48-year-old Englishwoman Pip Hare GBR, who is doing excellently with the 21-year-old former Superbigou of Bernard Stamm SUI, the oldest Open 60 in the fleet, and has always been among the fastest during the last days. —– The race tracker.
