Heading straight North in northerly trade winds, the leading group will probably have to overcome the last strategic hurdle before the final sprint to Les Sables dOlonne tonight: a flat high-pressure system ahead. By this morning UTC, Charlie Dalin FRA (Apivia) extended his lead to 110 miles. Louis Burton FRA (Bureau Vallée 2) sailing in the far west follows in 2nd, Thomas Ruyant FRA (LinkedOut) is now again 3rd with Boris Herrmann GER (SeaExplorer) now in 4th with 143 miles behind. As best non-Foiler, Damien Seguin FRA follows on 5th position (181 miles behind). The Race-Tracker and the Reports.
