Transat Jaques Vabre - Mini Transat

Hum, I think Pella is going to overtake Riecher again and it will win a lot over Rogues on the light winds but it will not be enough to catch him, of course. He is in a much better position in relation to the wind regarding Riechers.

Regarding that particular race on Open60 between Tanguy and Benedetto I am really sorry for Benedetto. Even with that big problem with the boat with a lot of water inside he managed to recover over Tanguy and finished at 9 seconds. I said that those two would finish at eyesight view, but 9s after 21 days is pretty unbelievable

On the mini transat Benoit Marie has maintained the distance over Pedote: about 28nm.
