 IMOCA Open 60 Class 40 - Route du Rhum - StMalo-Guadeloupe FRA - Day 11
Only five of the original 11 boats are still in the race, as the rough conditions earlier in the race overstressed some of the fragile trimarans. This morning, the leading Erwan Le Roux FRA had 128 miles to go this morning, and he will have terminted the Altlantic crossing by noon. Lalou Roucayrol FRA on the unchallenged 2nd place is now 117 miles behing . Tomorrow, the winner of the IMOCA Open 60 François Gabart will arrive in Guadeloupe. Jérémy Béyou FRA follows 94 miles back. The Class 40 have roughly 1'400 miles to sail to the port of destination, and will be underway for another week. Alex Pella ESP remained on top, but Kito De Pavant FRA, is only 31 miles back. He presents his monohull with a video tour. Even the next prersuers Thibaut Vauchel FRA and Yannick Bestaven FRA are close enough to move on the first position. The Class Rhum - a very heterogeneous group with various boats' types - is clearly lead by Anne Caseneuve FRA on her trimaran. 14 of the 19 participants are still in the race. Robin Knox-Johnson GBR age 79, winner of the first round-the-world race 'Golden Globe' in 1969, is on the 5th place.
