Re: Interesting Sailboats
Seems Gabart made the better decision, it's 80miles and rising...
103NM now but even if it is not showing yet I believe Armel is recovering: He has now a better angle and more wind but I don't believe he can recover 50nm and probably it will recover just a bit over half of that.
The only option for Armel now is not following François in what regards the passage of the Doldrums, that are ahead, and hope its choice is better than the one from François. If they come out of it with a 50Nm difference I don't think Armel can pull it off, unless François got in mechanical troubles.
