GROUPAMA dismasted while leading Puma. Telephonica is only 36 miles behind Puma; so the race is far from over.
Groupama and Mar Monstro are neck and neck. 1300 miles to go. What would you do? Read all About it HERE.
Banque Populaire V has a 2300 mile lead over the phantom Groupama, the present record holder. We tend to focus on the boat and the crew. The real story for me is the weather routing. The departure of Banque Populaire from Ushant occurred not because there was wind that day, but rather after exhaustive study the low systems globally appeared to be lining up favorably. So far, it is brilliant.
Banque Populaire V is blazing along. Their lead over Groupama 3 after 11 days is more than 1800 miles. Banque Populaire is a massive trimaran at 40 meters. The web site is very well set up with as much information as you could ever want to know and very easy to navigate.
