    That's what I thought would happen. In the next photo you can see the water streaming in with the weigth of ballast in the foils dragging it down.

    The top three managed to take a small lead again added with Louis Burton as fourth topman. Yannick making the slowest speed. Great...

    Who's winning.... Crazy close is what Thomas Ruyant wrote when Yannick took the lead 2 hours ago. Yanick is favoured by the waypoint that is only an indication. By redress Jean le Cam or Boris Herrmann is winning. Good article: https://www.vendeeglobe.org/en/news/21664/crazy-close

    The first 9 boats are being compressed together, The last 4 having more speed then the top 5. Yannick still in a very interesting position, will it work out?

    I meant the top group who are in close racing. Charal, well we all know the story, he was able to fight back to 16-th position, and still climbing. Remarkable. True!

    Wow, This is close racing. Daniel Seguin highest speed.

    Ha, Because master navigator Yannick found the fastest way again. I find this very captivating, really brillant.. Next position report in 1 hour.

    I have seen Yannick doing things close to cape horn that looked like he was going the wrong way, turned out brilliantly in his advance. Perhaps he has another trick up his sleeve. There is a wind hole in the area, perhaps Yannick is avoiding that.

    In the latest position report Yannick is losing his lead. He makes less speed ad well. Charlie 12,8 kN and 8,9 kn for Yannick. Rest of the fleet catching on him as well. The miracle navigator made a mistake for once to chose the westward route close to the brazilian shore.

    Amazing, Thanks, But it's just like chess, you never can foresee what the next move of the opponent will be. According to Andi ( and Stief) Yannick made the right decision again. We will know for sure tomorrow and the day after that. To keep track Charlie distance to leader is 195,1 nM Thomas 329 nM Great.

    100 % agreed. there is another interesting gamble between Yannick and Thomas Ruyant who is taking the route west of the Falklands. These are the projected weather forecast by windy. Vendee 5 -1 -2021 1100 forecast Vendee 6 -1 -2021 1100 forecast And don't ask me why windy is freezing the position of Yannick while promoting Charlie Dalin. True. Can you run your navigational software on the next 2 days Herman? Is Linked Out right or Yanick?

    Yesterday everyone was astonished by the easter course Yannick took. Look at him now. It has a reason he is leading; he's very good in this game. 182,7 nM lead on Charlie Dalin, Captivating.

    There is nothing on twitter or facebook where Yannick is explaining his akward course. I have a logical explanation: after the cape he was so exhausted he fell asleep.
