    Banque Populaire To Divert To Recife



    Leaders of the ARKEA ULTIM CHALLENGE-Brest, Tom Laperche and Charles Caudrelier this morning are racing just 100 miles east of the Brazilian coast after passing the Equator early Sunday evening. And it looks like they will now devour the passage towards the longitude of Cape Town at good speeds. The wind flow around the Saint Helena high pressure is favourable and in flat water they should be able to sail at close to maximum speed potential.

    DAY 4 UPDATE.



    Four of the six solo sailors competing in the ARKEA ULTIM CHALLENGE - Brest have taken their multihull out of the low pressure zone that they have had to face in recent hours. A relief for everyone, now looking for the first breaths of the trade winds.



    Facing depression alone in ULTIM is a bit like being hit with a hammer to the head: the best time is when it stops. For thirteen to fifteen hours, the four giants faced the stormy

    An Early Exit For Ultim Team Members

    So you want to be part of the Ultim media team, or start assist crew and be aboard at the start?



    That's all fine and well, but rules don't allow for extra, potential helping hands, so, once you have completed the task, it's time for a quick departure!



    Sorry, but the support RIB's cannot keep up with these maxi trimarans, but if you are nice, they might swing by and give you a lift back to shore!
