    So what? Gabart was the first Ultime to Guadeloupe, and we know how that ended... I really hope AT can still grab this win, but a sanction seem unavoidable.

    We have an explanation for why Vincent Riou wasn't that fast since the start. http://www.courseaularge.com/probleme-de-pilote-automatique-prb.html He has had pilot problem since the first night, and can only keep a fixed direction, not a wind angle. A hard wipeout last night tore his big spinnaker... He'll will have a hard time keeping the pace I think.

    I don't think so, Gabart doesn't have enough runway to overtake...

    Yes, both of them are laying. The TV commentators are clearly not looking at any tracker...

    Much faster tack by Joyon. Maybe Gabart was having trouble with his missing rudder...

    He seemed stuck in his tack. So hard!

    Gabart has unfurled a larger headsail. Not sailing very fast.

    Gabart has passed the Basse-Terre buoy. Looks good for him. https://twitter.com/valjerome1/status/1061763201006821376

    Looking slightly better for Gabart... It's all going to play out in a tacking duel in the Canal des Saintes. Crazy!

    Looks like stock footage for Macif, shot before the race...

    Incredible race! What a finish. Both Fran├žois and Francis would make excellent winners, with a crippled boat for the first and a slower one for the other.

    Yes, there is a rudder on the main hull.
