Mini-Transat La Boulangere - Antal XPO takes lead

At the head of the Mini-Transat La Boulangere the battle continues. Arthur Léopold-Léger (Antal XPO) has now opened up a very slight lead over Ian Lipinski (Griffon.fr).Antal XPO -

This gap may not prove significant given how random the conditions are.

Within the group of favourites, Erwan Le Mené (Rousseau Clôtures) has gained over 40 miles in relation to the head of the fleet in 24 hours.

Whilst Simon Koster (Eight Cube Sersa) has lost 20 over a similar period. As the leaders stumble in the calms, there may well be a bunching up of the fleet with more upsets in the ranking.

In the production boat category, Erwan Le Draoulec (Emile Henry) swapped positions but overnight Clarisse Crémer (TBS) took back the lead.

Tanguy Bouroullec (Kerhis-Cerfrance) is back on the podium in third place after sailing a blinder that has won him 50 miles over the same period.

As such, clearly no-one is protected from a nasty surprise. Behind the big names, there is room to dream . . .
