Rather than making the big detour north, it seems like the leading twosome are going to have a go with the more direct, but potentially riskier option.

Into their respective risk management equations falls the fact that Jean-Pierre Dick has been so slowed recently, and in fact the Virbac-Paprec 3 skipper is now some 680 miles adrift in third. The threat from behind is hardly nullified, but Armel Le Cléac’h and François Gabart will be happy to be stuck together through this next stage.
