    24h 829 as of last report. 768nm advance. If they push up over a 1000 mile advance, losing 100 miles a day won't hurt so much with IDEC's run across the indian ocean.

    Yann uses a racing drone (it'll do 50 easy) for the high speed shots and the pretty shots are Mavic 2 Pro

    Yann didn't lose one in the VOR. He knows what he's doing.

    My first cup of coffee brain was melting thinking "who gives a shit about the TJV? Franck both won it and set the record!"

    TJV is Transat Jaques Vabre Looks like a solid 3 days with this low, possibly longer looking at euro. Their 4 hour speed is sitting right at 24h record pace.

    Again, you seem to think they're just going to fix the hull and be on their way. It sunk. It was full of water, everything has to be pulled apart, inspected and possibly replaced.

    As Charles has said, their focus isn't the equator record, its the Jules Verne trophy.

    This is a bit more than some bog and paint.

    Pretty sure they just wanted to be in the south Atlantic in under around 6 days, you'd have to go back and watch the green light video.

    Gitana has basically destroyed every current ultim in all conditions. I'm not sure they're overly worried as long as they get decent conditions.

  14. You'll land around Ushant if you bank on that.

    Not what I said but ok.
  16. And a lot of people would have quit by now.

    1600ish 2000ish miles. Once they get of this hole, that's doable cracking off some 700 mile days. They need to be around 35S 25W by Sunday afternoon.
  18. Every gybe/tack/sailchange is perfect too.

    Phew, back to ripping off the miles.

    This is the boat that can recover 100 miles in hours though.

    Dot is roughly where they are. At least its nice and warm!
  22. The North/West fleet has a pretty much straight shot to the finish now, the Southerly/Easterly group has a ton of gybes to go.

    Pretty conditions, but slow.
  24. Now we wait for the meteor to hit the fleet?

    Given they didn't seem too worried in the video from an hour ago it seems they're just in a hole. If you take a gander on windy.ty there's a TON of holes in their neighborhood and around 10kts of breeze.
