    FRENCH UPDATE 10/10/2018 : #GGR2018

    100 days! Just over 100 days ago, the skippers of the golden globe race 2018 took the departure of the sands of olonne, 100 days without interruption that they trace their ephemeral wake around the globe, on this immense sea at So many faces. Left five days ago from Hobart's drop point in an ideal weather, Jean-Luc van den heede has just wiped his first blow on the New Zealand road, which is approaching just over 6 Average knots. The strengthening of the south wind will lift a large wave of 6 TO 7 metres in the next few days, which will fortunately come back as this impressive leader gets closer to the tip of the south island of this country of adventure.

    Like the magician gandalf, the Dean of the race continues to pave the way for an out-of-STANDARD QUEST THAT ONLY 9 Sailors are still able to see the end. And that the road is long... if experience and preparation without fault, the stainless envy and to all say talent have worn Jean-LUC VAN DEN HEEDE 1700 miles from Mark Slats, his first competitor, his pursuers Maintain more complicated reports with the elements. With his viking tunes, the Dutch giant traces his road hard for now, always close. In a relatively weak wind, Mark sees his bow crashing vague after wave, without it being able to do much... and it will last for a while!

    This is not the case of uku randmaa, third to 600 miles. If the wind remains light for now, the next few days promise great changes. A series of depressions is approaching the back of the fleet. Tomorrow, the first reaching Tapio Lehtinen then Istvan and finally Susie Goodall. In Chichester, Loic Lepage will escape at the worst of the storm. The Storm promises to grow as it returns the competitors before reaching its peak Wednesday at the beginning of the evening. This is the end of the mistakes of the Indian ocean... Fortunately, the sailors concerned are relatively north and should not suffer long the strongest of the wind.

    4600 miles from the leader, Igor Zarestskiy and Mark Sinclair are not here yet. Both are stuck on the edge of a high-pressure system that they try to escape by driving south, to hang a diet of winds that will allow them to curve their path to the east, in the right direction! If they are good, they close the March of a league of adventurers inhabited by an immense quest, where everyone must inspire the greatest respect. Already 100 days of solitude at sea...
