    Hard one for BP. Stop there and sending the message that you quit when it get tough. Build a new one and lose visibility for at least a year, spend millions and risk having a brand new ultim ... with a dying or dead class. Sponsor an IMOCA, but after having had an ULTIM it's like playing in second league. And what to do of ALC ?

    Some of you are fucking funny on this topic. You speak about getting away from a ferry or from rocks. Nothing to do with this situation where the guy WAS FUCKIBG ALLREADY AGROUND CAUSE SLEEPING ! You can bet he had no hesitation whatsoever to fire his engine becauqe of thz rules when hz finaly woke up.

    Kersauson was hanging a winch handle over his head. When the boat was moving in an "unfamiliar way" he would take it in the face and wake up ...

    Nope they will be given a panalty for sûre ! Ask Jean Le Cam why he dived 5 meters deep alone in the southern freezing ocean during the VG, and didn't just started his motor

    Absolutly disagree with you What makes those races top noch is the fact that they are hard and only an elite few giving everything can win it. Yeah sleep depravation is a real bitch. Guess what ... all the other sailors out there have to deal with it too. He can be the winner in your opinion, as much as if my grandmother had wheels she would be a bicycle.

    Nerve wreking finish for Paul, everything to win for Elies. I don't think daggerboards vs foils will be what makes the win, only not falling for too long in a wind hole.

    There's a maximum deviation from normal course that the autopilot accepts in wind mode, aint it, and setting off alarms when too far off course ?

    AT should be dsq. Without motoring he could not have finished, that's 1n unfair advantage

    As long as the wind is to low to fly the center hull, no such a big deal aint it ?

    Gabart must have mechanical problems I hope that if joyon wins, media won't do their usual fuckup "he win because the first one broke" If he wins ot would be because this freaking beast of a sailor managed to be constantly faster than the crewed polars for his boat, sailing the old way ... glued at the helm
