This is going to be a long 9 months! Already very interesting!!!!
They will stay on that course. They will have wind ahead and they know it. It is possible that Groupama just change course going to the west to get more wind. He would have a better angle, but of course, near the coast it is possible that Groupama have thermal wind that does not show on the wind forecast. Looking at the forecast it looks that if Groupama maintains course it will have less wind than the other more to the west.

I am very curious to see how Cammas that is a master in many different types of racing (and boats) will compare to the ones that have more experience on this race. He is a rookie here....but i bet on him

And the other big race, the Transat, are you not following it? They will get 50K wind and heavy seas tonight!

......

Cheers
