Groupama escapes Doldrums

It is already a week since the 60' multihulls set off from Le Havre. With 3,000 miles devoured and less than 1,300 miles left to go, Groupama 2 has been bounding along at the head of the fleet for four days now. At the 1600 hour ranking, Franck Cammas and Stève Ravussin were still holding onto a firm lead ahead of their direct rivals. And whilst the Cammas-Ravussin duo are likely to escape the Doldrums tonight, their pursuers are just preparing to enter the zone. - Groupama 2
