250nm is the distance that separates Groupama from the second but I think that the Groupama is not going to win anymore and will start to lose about 120nm a day for a day and a half or so. After that the conditions should be around the same, but who knows for sure?
That lead is going to much smaller in two days...and we will see if in 3 days they are still leading. When you have two radically different course options the wins and losses can be huge but that make also a much more interesting race!!!
