Vendee Globe

Armel continues to win miles but Alex is getting me confused....again I hate when he does that and specially when is right in what is doing.

This time I understand what he is doing but it looks a risky move to me. He is going to do the opposite he had done last time.

He is trying to go on the shorter course and contrary to the others is not going to dive South to get more wind but for that he has to cross a zone with weak wind, after that as far as the weather information goes (36h) that's all good. I guess that all depends on the next 6 hours and the ones after the 36 that are given on the prevision. I hope he makes it. I like guys that don't follow the heard and Alex had done that two times in a row.
