“This should be a nice day – light airs and sun,” says Cédric Pouligny, skipper of BAE Systems. Indeed: 8 knots of southwest wind are blowing today in Vendée for one unique race starting at 10am.
The craning operations will then start from 12am to 10pm in Port-Bourgenay before to haul the boats to Roses, Spain. One last race today in the Atlantic Ocean, before the Mediterranean Sea.

“It’s going to be a great day in light airs and under the sun. These conditions will even the speeds out. It might redistribute the cards…
“It’s an important day with the crane operations and the transportation to Roses. We may have time to rest a bit but it will be quick – we’ll be back in the water as soon as Thursday.”
