    Leaders Approaching The Base: Saturday Arrivals Lay Ahead

    With a lead of some 88 miles and about 400 miles to the finish line it could be imagined that Yoann Richomme (Paprec Arkea) might ease back on the accelerator and consolidate to the Lorient finish line of the Retour a La Base, but the French skipper remains the fastest of the top 10 skippers. Making over 20kts late this afternoon he can imagine being finished by 1600hrs local time Saturday, landing his first big IMOCA race win ever, his first ever proper solo outing.

    The Migration North Continues





    Until tomorrow evening, the head of the fleet will continue its progress to the North. It is only after the anticyclone has bypassed that they will begin to move towards the East and have to deal with depressions. In the meantime, everyone is increasing their intensity and resisting conditions that are not always pleasant. State of play as Jean Le Cam arrived in Martinique this afternoon.
