Vendee Globe

The race continues with an incredible pace. Armel has managed to maintain the lead, François had overtaken Jean-Pierre and maintain about the same distance to Armel. Stamm gained some miles.

For the next gate I believe there are two ways: one passing over it and I think that it is what Armel is going to do and other one crossing it from below. Stamm is probably going to cross it coming from bellow. François and Jean-Pierre can go either way. It seems to me that for a day or so Armel will have advantage but then it is possible that he enters a zone with weak winds.

Stamm will have a worse wind angle but will have wind all the way. I don't know what is better but I start to have a huge respect for Armel that is managing to pass without losing much speed in zones that seems that are going to slow him down a lot. So....
