The La Charente-Maritime Bahia PR Transat 6.50 fleet starts to converge towards Porto Santo before steering for Madeira’s main island. The first Protos are expected tomorrow afternoon. The first leg’s finish line is located in front of Funchal in the south of the island.

At noon today David Raison (747 – TeamWork Evolution) had hit the lead again. Sebastian Rogues (716 – Eole Generation – GDF Suez) and Jorg Riechers (753 – Mare.de) were respectively second and third. David took advantage of the 4 Beaufort East/Southeast wind and he sailed fast in a moderate to stormy sea. His futuristic Proto wass heading to 188° and he holds the record of the longest distance covered over 24 hours (on the second of October at 07:00 UTC).

Benoît Mariette (599 – Odalys Vacances) has been fast since yesterday and is now at the top of the Series fleet. Clément Bouyssou (514 – Douet Distribution) and Renaud Mary (535 – runo.fr) overtook Fabrice Sorin (781 – Cartoffset) who stayed too long on the route to the West.

As the fleet approaches Madeira, the effectiveness or the inefficiency of the options chosen by the skippers is revealed. Now the main objective for all is to get back on the direct course and reach Madeira as soon as possible. While the West supporters suffer and slowly join the rest of the contestants, those that chose the East option are a lot more relaxed. For example Guillaume Le Brec (667 – Occamat/ATD), Rémi Fermin (741 – Boréal) and Lucas Montagne (618 – Ong Conseil) have been rewarded with precious miles between yesterday and today. And the reward is clear - Guillaume was 18th yesterday and today he is seventh. Rémi 'jumped' from the 14th to the eighth position, Lucas from the 26th to the 11th.

ETA in Funchal - Madeira: Tuesday the fourth of October 2011 in the afternoon.

Radoslaw Kowalczyk (790 - Calbud) followed procedure and warned the race director via his beacon that he has massive keel problem and is heading to the closest port. All is fine on board. Radoslaw is sailing at 3.90 knots and is on a heading of 69/70 degrees. Juan-Carlos Oliva (624 - Zumex) also contacted race control to advise he has a technical problem and that he has u-turned to head to Spain.

Since his return to La Rochelle, Andrea Pendibene (520 - 520 Intermatica ITA) formally announced his withdraw of the Charente-Maritime/Bahia Transat 6.50 2011.
