Macro Third on Safran


Marc Guillemot crossed the finish line of La Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe at 14:59:20hrs UTC this Saturday 15th November to secure third place in the IMOCA 60 Class.
His elapsed time for the 3542 NM course is  13d 1h 59m 20s making an average of 11.28kts. In reality he sailed 4056 NM at an average of 11.28kts. His delta behind the IMOCA class winner Francois Gabart is 21h20m25s.
It is 'Marco''s fifth Route du Rhum (4th in 1998 in the ORMA, 2nd in 2002 in the ORMA, 7th in 2006 in the IMOCA, 3rd in 2010 in the IMOCA). His course again showed his tenacity and drive for his final race on this boat in the colours of Safran. Even with a number of technical problems he stayed tight in the top trio. He arrived in Pointe a Pitre in a state of considerable fatigue having had no pilots for the final 72 hours. And, weirdly, it is the third time that he has arrived in Pointe a Pitre on the 15th November.
