    Today the finish of Multi50 and IMOCA class...

    in next 8-10 hours we will see the arrival of Multi50 Fenetrea Prysmian as the wind speed reduced heavily going under land. Still 88 nm to race.

    For now at 04:00 am CET the leading multi50 is sailing 11 knots and close behind only 15 nm on distance the IMOCA PRB with a speed of 9 knots, both straight West course.

    Great finish at early morning Brazil time !

    victory of Multi50 class....

    Hip, Hip, Hurray !!!! Bravo... well done. Congrats to Erwan LE ROUX and Giancarlo Pedote (co-skipper). Bravooooo

    Erwan now is three times winner of TJV. - After his win of Route du Rhum in 2014, and two times the Transat Jacques Vabre in 2009 and 2013 he crossed on board of Multi50 FenĂȘtrĂ©A-Prysmian at 11:59 am the finish line having sailed the distance of ~5400 nm in nearby 17 days. - Great continuouity of high performance.

    Two hours later came in IMOCA PRB. Congrats to Vincent Riou and Seb Col !


    Remarkable: Since first day Vincent and Seb navigated the racing boat without electronics because of a navigation system failure. They only had the datas of COG (Course over ground) and SOG (Speed over ground) ! - No wind strength, no wind direction. - Sailing by using all senses and natural instincts and being competitive on highest level is still possible ! - Maybe the biggest and most impressive lesson we can learn from TJV2015.
