    I realise there may be a thread elsewhere on the race but there are three Multi50's competing. The race so far has demonstrated how well a good, low budget and relatively simple trimaran can compete in a mixed fleet. The three front runners are all Multi50's with Thibaut Vauchel-Camus and Frederic Duthil having the best of it so far on the Multi50 Solidaires en Peleton Arsep with Sebastian Rogues and Matthieu Seuben chasing on the Multi50 Primonial (One time known as Actual and campaigned by Yves le Blevec) and Groupe GCA in third now campaigned by Giles Lamire with Antoine Carpentier (the venerable and much campaigned Crepes Wahou 3).

    Primonial has been overtaken by Groupe GCA, Solidaires en Peleton Arsep still well in the lead of the Multi50's and the whole fleet for that matter.

    There has been a reshuffle of positions with Primonial once more in the lead followed by Groupe GCA and then Solidaires en Peleton Arsep in third but looking at weather and pressure the more Southerly position of Solidaires and the better angles they are on may prove to be superior in the next 24 hours.

    A split in the Multi50's with Solidaires en Peleton Arsep choosing to sail through the Canary Islands and Group GCA and Primonial headed further towards the west.

    Primonial had to make a technical stop in the Cape Verde islands to sort out a charging problem. Groups GCA is well in the lead with Solidaires en Peleton Arsep chasing hard.

    Groups GCA are still in the lead but Solidaires en Peleton Arsep are closing in on them. Primonial are back with the leading monohulls after their technical stop.

    With about 460nm to go it looks almost certain that Giles Lamire and Antoine Carpentier will come in first in the Transat Jacques Vabre on the much campaigned former Crepes Wahou3 now called Groupe GCA. They have sailed a relatively conservative race but the tactical decisions that Solidaires en Peleton Arsep have made haven't paid off they are about 229nm now behind the leader now so unlikely unless Groupe GCA drops into some sort of epic wind hole that they will catch up or the field will compress.

    23nm to go for the crew on Groupe GCA who have hardly put a foot wrong in their race. Solidaires en Peleton Arsep are going to be in second and Primonial will probably sneak in prior to the first of the IMOCA's.

    Groups GCA finished in first (11 days 16 hours 34 minutes and 41 seconds), Solidaires en Peleton Arsep arrived in second place (12 days 2 hours 38 minutes and 1 second). Now just waiting on Primonial to complete the Multi50 podium.
