Guillemot arriving in third Sir RKJ up to third

So with the Multi50 podium complete, next up will be the turn of Marc Guillemot who will complete his swansong on Safran with third place in the IMOCA 60 class, repeating his 2010 finish when he pipped Jean-Pierre Dick in the final miles. Guillemot has usually finished on the 15th November and he will do so again today. At 0900hrs TU this morning he had 35 miles to go but was suffering off the west of the island in the usual light airs,  making 3kts.

In Class 40 Alex Pella is still holding that lead of about 73 miles on Kito de Pavant. And in the Rhum Class Sir Robin Knox-Johnston is now up to third place on Grey Power.
