It remains exciting for the ranks 15-18, only 87 miles apart this morning. The wind conditions on the Bay of Biscay are very atypical for this time of year, with a fresh south-westerly wind building up. —– Arnaud Boissières FRA (La Mie Caline) is still 15th, Kojiro Shiraishi JPN (DMG Mori) follows 23 miles behind. Stéphane Le Diraison FRA (Time for Oceans) 83 miles back and Alan Roura SUI (La Fabrique) just 3 miles behind are trying their luck with a slightly more northerly route and were already able to make up some ground yesterday. —– The race tracker and the reports.
