TRACKER


FRENCH LANGUAGE REPORT 24/08/2018 #GGR2018

The wind is back for most of the competitors of the 2018 this morning. Only Igor Zaretskiy is not really ok, always stuck (0,4 knot...) on the edge of a band without wind that will fortunately get off in the day and allow him to finally descend to the tip of South Africa.

In Front, it always goes good and the great news of this August 24 is that the leader of the race, Jean-Luc Van Den Heede, has passed the course of good hope today. This symbolic stage marks the end of the Atlantic and the beginning of the Indian Ocean. This part of the world is surely one of the most uncomfortable for who adventure to sail around the globe and it is clearly the beginning of a muscular progression for the fleet of the golden globe race 2018.

If the Dean of the race (73 years) has already had to compose with a difficult sea last night, his pursuers will soon be struck by bad weather. Mark Slats, ALWAYS 2th 500 miles behind. More South, 300 miles from the Dutch Giant, are wiig and gregor mcguckin run on the edge of a depression that will go back on them and make the swell grow again... which should be approaching 10 meters tomorrow!

This seems to be well suited to the young Irish, full of enthusiasm and enthusiasm, determined to become the first representative of this proud people to close a world tour without a stop. He traveled almost 160 miles yesterday to nearly 7 knots of average...

Behind, uku randmaa, Susie Goodall, Abhilash Tomy and loic lepage have all found wind and conditions will grow rapidly. Itsván and and Mark Sinclair obviously escaped the weak band of winds that threatened them. A little lagged in the west, Captain Coconut, however, may soon have to fight against face winds while his direct American-Hungarian competitor should benefit from a better angle...

The most to complain this morning is probably tapio lethinen, who has lost a lot in the last few days. Busy solving his many energy problems, he also had to fight with a small band of wind that he just started out. In The Chichester Category, Philippe fishing continued his road to Cape Town at reduced speed, and Antoine Cousot left his shelter under trindade island. The Repair of his speed regulator is done, but the skipper is still injured...
