 IMOCA Open 60, Class 40, Multi 50, Ultime  Transat Jacques Vabre  Bahia BRA  Day 8
The line honours at the Transat Jacques Vabre 2017 went to Thomas Coville/Jean-Luc Nélias FRA ! As expected yesterday, the experienced round-the-world record holder Coville with Nélias as co-skipper on their Ultime-Trimaran crossed the finish line as first after 7 days and 22 hours. With a 1h 48min backlog arrived Sébastien Josse/Thomas Rouxel FRA in Bahia BRA.
In the Multi 50, the Doldrum passage brought about a leader change. Within 24 hours, Lalou Roucayrol FRA/Alex Pella ESP transformed a 44-mile-deficit into a 40mn advantage. Erwan Leroux/Vincent Riou FRA stalled in the innertropical convergence zone for too long.
The first Open 60 to be decelerated was 'Virbac' with Jean-Pierre Dick/Yann Eliès FRA earfly this morning UTC. Her advantage of 37nm on Paul Meilhat/Gwenolé Gahinet FRA will melt even more during the day.
In the Class 40, Phil Sharp GBR/Pablo Santurde ESP reclaimed the first place. Maxime Sorel/Antoine Carpentier FRA follow 6nm behind. Aymeric Chappellier/Arthur Le Vaillant FRA 9nm back are not far away.
