Boris' boat has had a full overhaul in 2020 with a new name, Seaexplorer - Yacht Club de Monaco and notably new foilsWhy do several commentators suggest Boris is "faster" than Louis? Difference between the boats?
Thanks Stief, I have made a typo in the time compensation for Le Cam, he was awarded 16,25 and not 18,25 deduction. That would put Ruyant in 5th and JLC in 6th ranking.Thanks Herman. Interesting how that shows Yannick is still worth watching. (aside: shouldn't JLC be 16.25 hrs?)
Thanks for adding the link. Having a parade in order of finish (and maybe delta) at sunrise Thursday could be spectacular for the ones who miss the tide. Even the early crossers might like the extra time to prepare.The channel in Les Sables will be open for IMOCAS from 13h to 16h on wednesday. After that it will be 1 on Thursday morning.

"According to my routings, Clarisse could arrive in Les Sables-d'Olonne on February 3. It is a deadline that is both near and far. Clarisse is looking forward to finishing it soon, she touches her dream with her finger, but she must not be too impatient. She remains vigilant and focused. It is currently off Cape Verde, the road is still damn long. A lot can happen. At the end of the round the world trip, the machines are worn out, so are the sailors. We must ensure that the boat's bobos do not get worse. We have already seen dismasting or other serious damage in the last days of a Vendée Globe. This must be avoided at all costs. Within the team, we are both happy with the progress made and vigilant. "
Only realised the other day (after killing time looking at Pip's pages on her sponsors website) that Clarisse is easily on track to set a new female monohull single-handed non-stop RTW record.
