Aneo out on her own

The lead of the Rhum class has swung back in the favour of Anne Caseneuve on the trimaran Anero. Andrea Mura, longtime leader, has strayed too close to the centre of the high pressure zone and ran out of breeze. The leader Anero is racing in among the Class 40 fleet.

So while the race winner is expected in Guadeloupe this evening, the first of the Rhum Classe fleet still has more than 2000 miles of the 3542 miles course to sail. Portuguese skipper Ricardo Diniz ( has left La Coruna this morning and so he still has 3000 miles to sail.

Mura, on the optimised Open 50 Venta di Sardegna, who won the class in the last edition has lead for most of the time so far. But the Azores high has proven problematic for the Italian skipper who has lost nearly 100 miles in 24 hours.

The racing behind is good too with an engaging mix of monohulls and multihulls mixing it up. Willy Bissainte on the Pogo40 Tradysion Gwadloup is third in ahead of some of the larger monohulls like the ex Kriter VIII of Wilfred Clerton (Cap au Cap Location) and Sir Robin Knox-Johnston (Grey Power) and the little tri of Jean-Paul Froc (Berto Group). Finland's Ari Huusela (Neste Oil) lies eighth.
