Road to the Route du Rhum 2018

Fantastic Simon consolidates his second place overall!

Simon is still second overall, and consolidating his position. Ian Lipinski extended his lead overnight (now 91 milles over Simon) whilst the Swiss skipper is now 17 milles ahead of Jörg Richers. Unfortunately, Romain Bollinger, one of Simon’s direct opponents for the overall ranking, seems to have a problem and was stopped this morning; a supporting boat is sailing towards him.

The « Atlantic gamble » has started, with some sailors – including Jörg – gibing towards the South overnight. Simon and Ian carry on towards the North, at approximately 9 kts.
