    BlueBell Ahhhhh...

    Is there any real-time, or near-real-time coverage of this?
    I went to all the links provided and, although looking at close to a dozen different options on each link, couldn't find much.
    Thanks.

    Thomson appears to be leading IMOCA class, but Beyou's tracker reporting he's stopped. Thomson averaging a knot faster than the rest of IMOCA class over past 3 hours.

    Amazed that just now The Boss is leading the IMOCAS! And Gitana 17 is catching Macif-Mr. Josse is getting the hang of it. Gitana should be faster than Macif-hope Sebastien can prove it! Exciting race so far...
    Sorry about Banque Pop-hope they get it sorted fast.......
    UPDATE: Banque Pop is 73 miles behind Gabart and moving at about 12 knots...

    Only 3m separate Macif and Gitana! Imagine: a 100' foiler match race-I never thought I'd see this day.
    UPDATE: only.3 of a mile now separate the boats-Gitana doing 17 knots and Macif 10.
    Someone knocking on the door: Banque Pop up to 26 knots but a long ways back 60 miles.

    One, zero 8, 18--Macif passes Gitana due to a slow headsail set by Sebastien...
