Ten days into racing on the “Brest Atlantiques” and it is like a re-start from Rio with MACIF doing a pit-top, Sodebo Ultim 3 rerouting to avoid bad weather and all keeping the breaks to avoid exposing their boats from being pummelled by rough seas. The fleet is currently led by Maxi Edmond de Rothschild and conditions should become more manageable within two days.
