After five days only, the five MOD-70-trimarans are already in the approach to the finish in Brest FRA that they will reach this morning. At midnight, the still leading 'Spindrift Racing' with Yann Guichard FRA had 300 miles to go, and this sailing at an average speed of almost 30 kn. The race is not decided yet, as Sébastien Josse FRA with his 'Groupe Edmond de Rothschild' 43 miles and Michel Desjoyeaux FRA on 'Foncia' 55 miles behind 'Spindrift' are still pushing hard. The two damaged MOD-70 (we reported on the incidents earlier) continued the race at limited speed and are obviously far behind. The race-viewer, all reports and the videos.
