Looking at the weather forecast the routing of MACIF seems to be a catastrophy: They chose an easterly route and for the next 24h the more westerly you go the more wind you'll have. Stamm might be the biggest winner...
Yes, absolutely phenomenal racing and one of the best Jaques Vabre editions ever.
They are still on the "Pot au noir" (black cauldron) and the positions are now different: Gabart 1st, Riou 2nd, Beyou 3th, Marc 4th, Stamm 5th. stamm is only at 26nm and Riou at 5nm. Truly amazing after all this time of racing and it shows how those guys are all incredible sailors.
Transat Jacques Vabre 2013
On the Mini Transat things go a little slower but not less interesting with Delesne (2nd) managing to diminish is distance over Pedote (1st). He is now at 37.4Nm, have recovered on the last days about 25nm.
On the series boats continue a fantastic battle between Aymeric, Kostner and surprisingly (or maybe not) a girl, Justine. The two first are almost side by side while Justine is only 22Nm back. They are all ahead of most protos and that is a hell of a performance.
