Finally some wind !

30  Sep.  2016 -  23h 24

Today is windy  while 11 boats have been arrived, 3 have given up and 5 are still in the race. ORC podium is uncertain, it depends on Boulègue Pao Prod and Kétal arrival time.

Keel Bill has arrived at 5 :50 this morning. The team has been welcomed at the Yacht Club with croissants and spaghettis bolognese for starvers!

At 10 :18am, Eye Candy, the first Sydney 38, has crossed the finish line, followed by her sistership Speed Marine MSC. The sailors were all tired but all smiling. Thierry Leseigneur said « the weather conditions were really unusual with the wind prevailing windward. We have to be in the right place at the right time, this Groupama Race was very tactical. »

This afternoon, Banque de Nouvelle-Calédonie, the temporary leader on ORC, has arrived, waiting for Boulegue Pao Production results, to enjoy her victory or not !

Birdies Furax 2 has arrived at 2 :25pm. Boulègue Pao Production, Notorious, Kétal, XLR8 Province Sud and Moemiti are expected in the evening. The sailors are satisfied about the race, regarding tactic and strategy, but they are really tired as it was quite long…

The last boats in the race, Diogène and Odyssey have decided to quit.
