Roucayrol Secures Second After Slow Island Finish

On a quiet, close, humid morning in very light airs, this Friday morning, November 14th at 10: 29:10s Lalou Roucayrol crossed the finish line of the 10th Route du Rhum Destination Guadeloupe to take second place in the Multi50 class  The solo skipper of Arkema Aquitaine took 11d 21h 29m 10s to complete the course of 3542 miles at an average speed of 12.41 knots. He actually traveled 4014 miles, averaging 14.06 knots. His delta to first placed  Erwan Le Roux, is 16 hours 15 minutes and 15 seconds. Roucayrol arrived at Pointe-à-Pitre just after daybreak and in light airs after a painfully frustrating tour of Guadeloupe  (about 12 hours from La Tete a L'Anglais). Having pressed winner Erwan Le Roux for more than half ofthe course it was a frustrating final 24 hours for Roucayrol.
