Today, with 800 miles to go, the group of 5 (ranks 15-19) will be challenged again by a new front from the west with winds up to 40kn. Arnaud Boissières FRA (La Mie Caline) still holds 15th position, Kojiro Shiraishi JPN (DMG Mori) follows 30 miles back in 16th place. Alan Roura SUI (La Fabrique) is 100 miles behind Boissières still in 17th. Estimated time of arrival of the group in the night of Wednesday to Thursday. —– Manuel Cousin FRA, sailing in 23rd place, tried to fix the free dangling canting keel in a center position yesterday (as Alan Roura SUI did before) in order to be able to finish the race after all. It remains to be seen whether the repair will hold, otherwise, he would have to give up the race. He still has 2300 miles to go to the finish – the report. —– The race tracker and all reports.
