Rookie Ruling the Rhum

After going upwind in headwinds of 15-20kts the leaders are back reaching. The pacemaker remains transatlantic rookie Thibault Vauchel-Camus  on the Sam Manuard designed Mach 40 Solidaires en Peloton. Despite being on his first solo race across the Atlantic, the skipper from Saint Malo, is more of a multihull expert from the ORMA and Multi50 world and before that F18 Raids. He leads past Solitaire du Figaro winner (2002) and Transat Jacques Vabre runner up Kito de Pavant on the Tyker Evolution3 Otio-Bastide Medical with Spain's Alex Pella still nicely poised in third on the Botin design Tales 2. Pella reported today: “Everything ok aboard the "Tales II" I finally had the chance to sleep a little on the bunk. I even got in the sleeping bag. Yesterday afternoon the wind went down and I had to repair many things!! This left me once again, a few hours without being able to attend the boat. However, everything's rolling now!! Now upwind!! Very unstable!! Let's see if I go through the correct place...
Now "Tales II" is perfect!! Me too!! Except for my hands and feet... due to so much sea water!!”
