Vendee--PRB Abandons-Collision!

The skipper is ok but the boat is not. Third collision so far! See the next post vid to get an idea of how fast these boats are going. Vincent Riou's boat is not a foiler-damage to the keel. The second boat to withdraw due to keel damage:

As of a couple minutes ago Alex was going faster than Le Cleach and has gotten to within 15 miles. Go Alex!
UPDATE: this morning Alex is 12.1 miles from Le Cleach....

Brilliant footage, certainly shows Alex pushing hard, without that starboard foil. Now in front by less than a mile!. Long way to go, I remember Le Cl'each had a genny problem around the Falklands last time....
