Makifa's captain is still a stationary Route du Rhum leader in front of Francis Joyon.
Route du rhum winner Imoca in 2014 François Gabart is now close to repeat offending four years later in the most beautiful transatlantic. And this time in the Ultimate category, the double mono-multi unpublished. Under the guidance of Maksim-trimaran Makifa (32 meters), the fastest man in the world (42 days in 2017) fell below the symbol in the 1000-mile band that remained at night from Friday to Saturday.
To the south, a tropical leader and his tireless persecutor, veteran Francis Joyon (62, Idec Sport) began his series of maneuvers at West Indies, where grains and strong winds could increase the end of the trip. If he lost some feathers, the mattress Gabade stayed pretty comfortable at that night (112 miles to 1:45 pm French time) to hope for a happy ending. The organizers have already announced that Charente was expected by Tête à l & # 39; Anglais, a small island north of Guadeloupe, Sunday morning in the morning. The master of the Makifa will then have to travel the island from the east, bypassing the delicate buoy in Basse-Terre, before delivery to the Canal des Saintes and the finish line, which he could cross on Sunday, at the end of the morning after the local time, during the French mainland during the afternoon.
The first Imoca is not expected in Pointe-a-Pitre until next Friday. In what order? The break remains healthy. Alex Thomson (Hugo Boss), Paul Mehamath (SMA) and Vincent Riou (PRB) or Yann Eliès (Ucar-St-Michel) are expected to fight for a big fight for the trade winds. In the Multi50, Thibaut Vauchel-Camus (solidaires in Peloton ARSEP), the main ramp broke out Armel Tripon (chocolate ritual) boulevards, expected from Thursday's Pointe-a-Pitre but very busy Starting with 53 seafarers), but also very class 40 classes The explosion is still managed by Yoann Richomme (Veedol-AIC), 67 miles ahead of British Phil Sharp (Imerys Clean Energy). Follow Aymeric Chappellier and the Next Do Dean (Made In Midi). The first 40 feet could land on the pontoon on Wednesday, November 20, ten days after the winner of this 11th autumn release.
