Yves Le Blevec (Actual) pitstops in Cascais.

Early leader in the Multi50 Class Yves Le Blevec (Actual) has pitstopped into Cascais, Portugal to repair his wind-instruments.

Le Blevec was showing no lack of speed but the medium to long term prospects with no wind information were severly limited, severely compromising performance and safety under autopilot. Actual arrived in Cascais this morning and it was expected to be a short stop, meeting directly with his technical team. It should be a technical stop of only a few hours, but ironically it repeats a stop that Actual made into Madeira a year ago during the two handed Transat Jacques Vabre race to Brazil. Then the stop took just two hours.
