    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.
