Sébastien Josse analyses the race – Heading for an upwind crossing from Rio to Cape Town

This morning at 9:18am, the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild arrived at Salvador de Bahia where Gitana’s technical team has been working to repair its daggerboard. MACIF has now taken the lead in the “Brest Atlantiques”, but will also have to make a technical pitstop on Wednesday in Rio de Janeiro, to replace its central hull rudder (on loan from Banque Populaire). Sodebo Ultim 3 should then be able to take the lead ahead of Actual Leader. Every Tuesday, Sébastien Josse, who is consulting for the Brest Atlantiques race organisers, will review the previous week of racing.
