    Dalin is ahead in the last ranking. Ruyant seems to be significantly slower in this light weather ... or an issue with sails?

    Would that HB structural issue be the cost of the straight route through Theta?

    Meanwhile, Le Cam is still ahead of the first generation foilers

    Yep and the French have shown with the Tour de France (the one with drugs and bikes involved) that there is knowledge on how to do this properly. I am not a fan of the TdF event but the media coverage is impressive. Just the wrong people dealing with the Vendee now? They need to change this.

    FWIW - Apivia made an impressive difference during the TJV where Charal completely f-up their doldrums crossing tactics. Almost embarassing for Charal at that time.

    I would just raise the "incompetence" flag.

    Absolutely, and my take is that the organizers remain into a mode where it is "a local authority organizing a race with some international reach" where it should be " an international race with local authorities involvement". Smells like a huge politicaly influenced event (beause funding comes from Vendee local thing) that lacks a proper developement strategy to me.

    I also like the idea of the sponsor (Advens, the one that pays the bills) giving up their media exposure to Linkedout that seems to be a sort of networking tool for jobseekers that need help to find a job.

    Is Apivia is really follwing a strategy at 24h by staying positionned so west? He could have re-positoned several times by now.

    Could not agree more with Marcus Hitchinson above. If HB is as fast as claimed, the risk AT is by cutting corners through Theta seems very high. Finish first, first finish and so on ...

    Engine Seizure due to water in oil. No good

    Seems like Apivia is taking a west option on purpose, not necessarily to stay away from Theta?

    Looking at l'Occitane, given where he is: sould he* seriously consider the Eastern option? * I need to seriously get into routing software. Any tutorial around?

    And Ruyant in another tweet says he is concerned about the sea state passing the depression and will, on purpose "put on some fat" to lower the risk.
