    On Instagram Ambrogio Beccaria, Mini Transat winner and dominator of the class, has made a simulation, and projects a Maitre Coq win; 2 Sea Explorer 1.35 h; 3 Apivia 2.40h; 4 Bureau Valle 3.40 h. Very close between those four, the others further back.

    Sadly L'Occitane never got the chance to sail in the same weather system of the leading boats; seems to me it would have been faster. Of course speed is not the only factor, as this edition of the VG is clearly showing. But I would have loved to see Armel racing neck & neck with the leaders

    Apicil is having autopilot issues. Still no news from Burton

    Looks like Burton is having some trouble...

    Maybe it's a little too early, he's having better conditions, smaller waves. But I agree: a lower, more stable flight, may be the answer to many structural problems other boats are showing (HB, PRB). And the foils exiting the hull so high above waterline could spare the hull in case of hits with UFOs (Arkea)

    Sad for L'Occitane. It's flying, proving to be very fast. Too late

    L’Occitane has regained its pace. Let’s see if it gets back in the game. Lot of miles lost, but the race is long

    Sirena says (in italian) "Oggi non sono impressionato. Non sono tornato a casa choccato, insomma, dopo averle viste" that means: "Today I'm not impressed. I mean, I didn't go home shocked after seeing those (opponents B2s)". That sounds much less arrogant.
  9. Armel not localised since 13.30. Let's hope for the best

    Is it just me, or the bottom of the boat seems far from being smooth? It looks sort of unfinished.

    Thank you for your remarks about us Italians. That's very kind of you.
