    Well there was a point where a torn sail a jammed halyard would give those fuckers out front something to think about.I take nothing away from their getaway of the confused St Helena high's, but that was position and luck of the moment.I hate to see this race defined by what happen'ed south of the Equator and now it's lost more interest with the rescue unless they have probs too..

    sure I think that the race for the win is going to be boring... Unless Apivia has a problem, he is going to win easily! But for me the Vendee has always been interesting to follow for the races within the race. I do not really care about the winner when there's no suspense. 

    I am thrilled about:

    the 3rd place -  Boris, Yannick, Seb, Jean and Louis

    The race between Sam and Isabelle

    Is Damien going to finish on the podium??

    and so much more!

    Glad he is safe.But this has really fucked up this race,now the leaders can fuck off reef down and chill out.

    well the first 2 positions are secured by Charlie and Thomas anyway... The race for the podium is still on with every boat that participated to the rescue! Well... except Louis who did a a nice move here :-)

    (here is a rough translation)

    Kevin, Jean and Jean-Jacques (PRB CEO)

    JJ : Congrats to the both of you, you guys have a great seamanship spirit!

    K : We did a great job with Jean

    J : He ended up in a nice house

    *they all laugh*

    K : As I was saying to Jean 'I am sorry, you were doing so well in the race. I am sorry to screw everything up' and he replied to me 'well, last time it was the other way around. PRB rescued me' (back in 2008). Jean-Jacques, I am sorry for the boat

    JJ : it's just some pieces of equipment, no worries. 

    K : I did everything I could

    JJ : All is good

    K : I have no regrets. I reinforce the boat with 200kg of carbon fiber. It was like in movie when a boat sinks but worse... In 4 seconds, the boat nosedive, the bow bent to 90 degree, I looked into the cockpit, a wave came. I just got the time to send one text message, then all the electronics went out. it's crazy! Fold a boat... I did a lot during my career but this one I cannot believe it.
