    Armel Le Cleach in Banque Populaire has passed Alex in Hugo Boss and is now 3 NM ahead. Go Alex!

    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....
