Charles Caudrelier writes an update as the team enter the final hours of this race and the final chance to catch-up with Brunel and fight for the first position.
This morning we can see Brunel a few miles ahead! Those few miles ahead are also where the first place position is, the one we have been looking for since the start and failed so many times over the last few days.
We had a fantastic night sailing at 24 knots. We could have gone faster but we can’t forget about all the breakages and the boats that have suffered around us so much since the start.
Winning the leg would be a fantastic bonus which will give us the lead of the race. But for that we have to finish first and that is what I am going to focus on. No mistakes can be made now.
