Mini Transat and the Vendee Globe on the American sport's press:

"It is the most treacherous race you probably never heard off ":

Someday they will find out about the mini Transat and regarding that one with 71.6Nm to go Pedote, since he was overtaken, is for the first time slightly faster than Benoit Marie, not much, 0.2K. That means he was able to fix the problem he had? or just a casual difference in wind intensity?

I hope it is the first one and in that case he has 15K for recover. Even with the boat at 100% it would be close to impossible: They should arrive in about 10 to 12 hours and that would mean 1,5K difference in speed.

I am very curious to know what happened with Pedote's boat.
