Special envoy to Fort-de-France
Armel Le Cléach and Sébastien Josse are only a few hours away from victory in the Transat Jacques Vabre. The leaders have a 153.3 mile lead over SVR Lazartigue (François Gabart-Tom Laperche) in the final sprint towards Fort-de-France (Martinique). The leading boat is expected at the finish line around 6:00 p.m. (11 p.m. in mainland France). Their pursuers should arrive around four hours later if the current pace of the two Ultims continues.
