Under 1000 for Cammas, Groupe Bel abandons.
Within 1000 miles of Pointe-a-Pitre, Franck Cammas still has overall control of the Ultime class and the race, making more than 20 knots this morning on the giant green trimaran. Behind him Francis Joyon has taken second place ahead of Thomas Coville. Roland Jourdain’s lead in the IMOCA Open 60 class is now around 40 miles. Kito de Pavant has had to turn for the Azores, abandoning the race due to keel ram failure. (see IMOCA section news story) In the Multi 50’s Franck-Yves Escoffier still has over 100 miles in hand over Actual and should extend as he is out of the front and Actual was stuck early this morning. And Thomas Ruyant continues his march at the head of the Class 40’s.
