Behind the 17th day of Brest Atlantiques – marathon race four Maxi-trimaran. The leader of the still – Maxi Edmond de Rothschild (skippers – Frank Kamma/ Charles Cadrele): for his stern already more than 9 thousand miles traveled at an average speed of 24.8 per node. Agree, impressive.
Wednesday evening “Rothschild” around Robben island, 12 kilometres from Cape town, the first of the races turned North (finish a race, we will remind, in the French Brest, where started). After 8 hours Rabbenu came and Macif (françois Gabaret /Gwenola the Gain), but unlike leader, went to Cape town for your repair, which lasted 6 hours. Due to this, in second place came the Actual Leader (Yves Le Blevio/ Alex Pella).
Now the situation is. Actual Leader behind Maxi Edmond de Rothschild at 303 miles, but ahead of Macif 10 miles. We can assume that after a few hours of “Massif” will take it back to the second position.
As for the fourth trimaran – Sodebo Ultim 3 Volumes Coville and Jean-Luc of Nelia, he repaired in Cape town (problems with the steering), and his gap from the leader is 659 miles. What does “Sodebo” obvious outsider of the race.
