Transat Jaques Fabre

Great video from Energa:


Jour 7 - Energa -Transat Jacques Vabre 2013 por TransatJacquesVabre

On the head of the race on Open60 the fight is read hot with Riou leading after having overtaken Stamm. Gabart is closing bit by bit, slowly but persistently the distance to the leader that is now of just 15Nm.

That distance had already been 42Nm and I bet that many would think the Wonder team would recover faster. This slow recovery had certainly shown to the others on the head of the race that they can fight with Gabart and Desjoyeux.

On the 40class things are more interesting with the Riechers closing in
