Vodafone back in Nouméa !

27  Sep.  2016 -  07h 12

Vodafone is expected at around 10am in Nouméa this morning. Last night at 8pm, she was out of the Grand passage (600 meters up North of New Caledonia). The team is sailing crosswind along the western coast at 28 knots.

The New-Zealand trimaran has spent monday night sailing at more than 20 knots. Vodafone is expected this morning at Orphelinat bay at around 10am.

Feel free to welcome the team at Port du Sud and to congratulate the New-Zealand sailors. They will be the fastest team -a priori- to end up the race around the most beautiful island in South Pacific beating Crusader’s record (3 days, 18h 54mn).

During the day, Scallywag should arrive. Unfortunately, she is not beating Vodafone in real-time ! However, she will be the fastest mono on the line. .This ship has amazed New-Caledonian people at the start with its 44m mast and power.

In ambush, Beau Geste is also expected in Nouméa at the end of the afternoon and Ichi Ban at night.

On the East coast, Kétal, the smallest boat, is leading on ORC corrected time. On the West coast, the fleet is sailing headwinds near the coast. For the first ships, Jessica Rabbit trimaran and Ran Tan (Elliott 50) are leading. The rest of the fleet is from north to south. During this second night, the wind was west, the raincoats were out ! and some sailors are getting exhausted !

Most of the fleet is expected at the Grand passage during the night.
