The top four remain in a tight group with only 10 miles separating them
In diminishing breeze, the leading boats at the Transat AG2R continue to march toward the Caribbean in a tight group. Last night’s ‘old’ leader was Saveol – skippered by Samantha Davies (GBR) and partner Romain Attanasio (FRA). But this morning, Brit Air (Armel Le Cleac’h / Fabien Delahaye) took a very narrow lead.
Far to the south and far behind (120 miles) in 11th place are Bernard Stamm (SUI) and Gildas Mahe (FRA), but they have the best breeze and a two-knot speed-advantage over the others in the fleet.
