The gaps are closing in as the fleet approaches Cape Town

After two weeks at sea, it’s now becoming extremely close on the Brest Atlantiques, as the fleet race towards Cape Town. The trimarans bringing up the fleet have been able to take advantage of favourable conditions, now that the Saint Helena High has moved north, while Maxi Edmond de Rothschild, who’s currently leading the race, has had to make six gybes and is expected to arrive in Cape Town on Wednesday evening. This will be the second and final race mark, and where the fourth trimaran, Sodebo Ultim 3, is expected to stop about ten hours later.
