So Near So Far, Fabrice Amédéo pit stops in Basse Terre, Merron up to seventh


Fabrice Amédéo has had to make a techncial stop at Basse-Terre, only about 27 miles from the finish line of La Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe, after reporting that he had a bad kite wrap round his forestay.  That meant that he would not have been able to sail upwind to the finish and he felt might compromise his rig.
He therefore has lost his long held seventh place to Briton Miranda Merron (Campagne de France). He must take a minimum four hours stop. His technical team are reported to have helped him sort out the mess.
