On board Cheminées Poujoulat, Bernard Stamm and Jean Le Cam resumed their advance. The two leaders displayed again beautiful speeds and should shortly begin to recover from the north on their way. But above all, they have so far managed to generate high pressures which are installed on the South Atlantic since the Argentinean coast.

This is certainly the situation that prompted the crew to GAES Centros Auditivos to choose a road in the east of the Falkland Islands. On one hand, they can expect a more sustained wind, but mostly they are released from the grip of Neutrogena, which on a road near the great circle, slowed considerably. So the strategic game opens. The question is whether Guillermo Altadill will not try to come back and readjust in order to control Corbella and Gerard Marin, or if they prefer to play their cards regardless of the hand of a dversaire.

No motor flange option marked for competitors still in the Atlantic. Driven by the powerful western regimes, We Are Water and One Planet One Ocean & Pharmaton spin well underway towards Cape Horn. The threat Renault Captur is less pressing because Sébastien Audigane and Jörg Riechers are again struggling with saffron problems. Both browsers admit to having trouble identifying the cause of evil, but their Finot design proves ungovernable as they begin to tutoyer high speeds. Frustrated, the crew of Renault Captur has no time for no choice but to sail under powered. In the middle of the Pacific, there is no question of taking risks while the nearest land is still nearly a week at sea.

The only solution was to reduce the sail, sail under staysail and mainsail with two reefs. We wait for the day to see if we find a solution, otherwise, it will sail under powered to Cape Horn. We are currently in the middle of nowhere and we can not afford to break something. It’s frustrating because we sail for the survival of the boat, we do not have the feeling of being really in the race. To Cape Horn, we may not be able to navigate with a sail mast head.
