    LATEST NEWS. Uku Randmaa has made the easiest course and continues to plod along into a good position to get around Cape Finistere and out of the Bay of Biscay. Head winds continue to dictate each day for the fleet and Philippe Péché has taken an extreme inshore option where seas should be a lot less that Jean Luc Vandenheede is experiencing now. There is huge contrast in speed and course and all indications are that all skippers are frustrated but enjoying the ride, some in pleasant conditions. Игорь Зарецкий leads a small fleet that have been cross tacking and in VHF radio range including Susie Goodall Gregor McGuckin Empowered by Hanley Energy Loïc Lepage and Antoine Cousot...most entrants do not know where the others are and Loic is worried he is the last in the fleet but he is far from it and doing very well. Tapio Lehtinen and Are Wiig are also well placed to make the most of the breeze when it swings a little shortly after rounding the corner. The next 36hrs show frustrating light wind to continue. All entrants are in good shape! #GGR2018
