Yannick Bestaven fourth and Stéphane Le Diraison fifth

This Wednesday 19th November at 19:34:37 UTC Yannick Bestaven crossed the finish line of the 10th Route du Rhum in fourth place in Class 40 which mustered 43 entries at he start in Saint Malo. The solo skipper of Le Conservateur took 17d 6h 34m 37s for the 3542 miles course. He sailed 4448 miles at an average of 10.73kts. As it stands Bestaven does not get an official ranking as he needs to awaid the finalised time, corrected with the 24hours penalty applied by the International Jury. (Applied because he struck the South African skipper Philippa Hutton-Squire's boat during the first night of the course), so he must wait for a definitive position.
Then at 21h21m37s Stéphane Le Diraison crossed the finish line in fifth in Class40. The solo skipper of Ixblue-BRS took 17d 08h 21m 37s for the course. In reality he sailed 4 411 miles at 10,59 kts average. His delta to Class 40 winner is 14hrs 34 mins 29 secs
