Incredible Armel, the Jackal at work!!!

That's true. Absolutely incredibly since we cannot find the reason for that huge difference in performance on the weather chart they give it to us.

Armel, on the Doldrums, managed to reduce the difference from 260nm to 80nm and it seems that it will recover some more since the difference in speed on the last hour is huge. But it seem to me that after that François has a little more pressure than Armel and is going to recover some of the distance. Anyway, with a 80nm difference all things remain open again

Great play from Armel and one that I judged impossible. Great race
