Fifty per cent on the good gybe, Thomas Ruyant

Although he is more than a hundred miles from the two leaders, Thomas Ruyant knows that the final days at sea will be similar to a stage in the Solitaire du Figaro, a race in which he has already competed several times. Above all, the final race sees him as much on starboard as on a port tack, where he will be able to use on his fully working foil.

Ruyant: "The big question is: is the high pressure going to be fast enough to catch Yannick?"

The skipper who comes originally from Dunkirk, positioned further North than Charlie Dalin and Yannick Bestaven, is watching the complex weather situation closely and crosses his fingers that Bestaven’s lead will not extend further. The skipper of LinkedOut remains on the lookout and ready to pounce if there is the slightest opportunity.
