In 4 more hours, at this rate, Marie is going to be passing Pedote. I believe your analysis is probably correct - sail issues for Pedote. He's still doing 8 knots, so probably not rudder-related. Would be a real pity to get this far and lose the race because of gear failure. But don't want to take anything away from Benoit, who has sailed a tenacious race, never giving up even when Pedote was extending earlier. A real nail biter, as we say.

Humm, I still don't understand why they did not move the boat

But maybe all is not lost for Pedote depending on the sail where he has problems. If it is the main he is toasted but if it is the Spy for light winds maybe the stronger wind (16k) he has ahead will be enough for not losing so much with the smaller spy, assuming the problems is with sails and the bigger spy.

There are other interesting fights: The battle between Garcia and Delesne is not not finished. Deslene has an advantage of 1.9nm but Garcia was faster on the last measured speed by more than 1K. It will be interesting

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Marie is now 9nm ahead of Pedote with 149nm to the finish. Amazing!

Yes, amazing the tenacity of Benoit Marie that even out performed by a faster boat never let go but sad for Pedote that has obviously technical problems that prevent him to be faster. Anyway in stronger wind the difference of speed between the two boats is smaller, just about 0.5K. Unfortunately for him the stronger wind is going away and at the end Pedote is going to be much slower. Probably he lost the spinnaker for lighter winds.

On that fight for 4th, Delesne is slowly going away from Garcia that cannot take more speed from his 15 year old boat (he is now at 4nm). Incredible race for both of them, Garcia taking an incredible performance of a very old boat and Delesne, long time 2th, recovering about 50nm to Garcia since he was forced to stop for getting a new energy pile.

A great race

A note regarding the others that are still at the middle of the Atlantic: This year the trade winds seem to be much higher than usual and they are in the middle of the Atlantic without trade winds, beating many times against the wind in weak winds making between 3 and 5K. I think they are going to have a problem with supplies. Noddy previewed this abnormal weather situation and many will take a month to cross the Atlantic. I believe that the organization has to find a way to drop food and water for the ones that have a need.

Aureus XV

The Aureus XV is on the water. We cannot see it sailing yet but can have a look at the interior and to the incredible controls that allow the boat to be sailed by a couple.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I think it is an Island Packet 380 the only contemporary production boat that uses some kind of a full keel, better say a long keel.

From looking at the beginning of the clip, they are attached to a mooring by a line halfway down the stem on a bow eye fitting.. not exactly an easy release. Personally I'd have cut that line and been long gone, as you say.

The video is not continuous but it seems that there were people on board the whole time (no dinghy appears later, and surely had someone gone to the boat in a dinghy at that time that alone would have been video-worthy)

They did well to escape all that.. the pity is that surely the whole incident was avoidable?

Mini Transat and the Vendee Globe on the American sport's press:

"It is the most treacherous race you probably never heard off ":



Someday they will find out about the mini Transat and regarding that one with 71.6Nm to go Pedote, since he was overtaken, is for the first time slightly faster than Benoit Marie, not much, 0.2K. That means he was able to fix the problem he had? or just a casual difference in wind intensity?

I hope it is the first one and in that case he has 15K for recover. Even with the boat at 100% it would be close to impossible: They should arrive in about 10 to 12 hours and that would mean 1,5K difference in speed.

I am very curious to know what happened with Pedote's boat.
