Completed the second day since the start of the race in Brest Brest Atlantiques, which involved four Maxi-trimaran class Ultim.
Recall that the distance Brest Atlantiques – 14 thousand nautical miles. Now the route leads participants through the Atlantic to the coast of Brazil. There trimarans have to walk around the Islands Cagarras (five kilometers from Rio) and take a course on South Africa, and get to it, go around Robben island (12 km from Cape town) – then to turn back to Brest, where they on Tuesday took the start.

Last night they parted ways: “Rothschild” still heading South, while the “Massif” has turned to the West, and now, according to the tracker, “Rothschild” wins at 88 miles.
In third place – Sodebo Ultim 3 (Volume Covill /Jean-Luc Nelia) – 102,5 miles from the leader. Closes the Current race Leader (skippers – Yves Le Blevio /Alex Pella) – 183 miles from the leader.
