Conrad really has had a tough time. I really hope he can get a jury rig and still finish.

Loius Isn't far away now, next one in :) Nice to see everyone is heading back, guess the next interesting part will be the gaggle of boats from 9th place to 15th.

I think one thing is that Thompson has proved himself capable again. Even though he didn't train with the french, and did his own thing. Its an improvement on his last position and this time he wasn't gifted it. Not that i think at all he didn't deserve 3rd last time, he did however benefit from another persons miss fortune. He has won a lot of fans in france too!


This time he went and pushed for first the whole way round and gave us a hell of a story.


I have fully enjoyed watching all the video's and feeds. Big kudos to all the sailors in this edition, and hats of to ALC for eventually (hopefully) sealing a 1st place. You deserve it.

I thought in that video he sounded much more strained then ALC. ALC will know exactly where Thompson is anyway because of the tracker. 


Really enjoyed following this edition though, plenty more stories to be told yet too!
