The MACIF trimaran should cross the finishing line of The Bridge in New York, on Monday night (UTC+1), after 8 days at sea.

Monday, 03 July 2017

 

Just under 100 miles from the Big Apple on Monday Morning, the crew led by François Gabart has a 150-mile lead on IDEC Sport and is ideally placed to win this first Ultim only transatlantic race.

After encountering a very cold mist in the ice zone, the MACIF crew are expected to enjoy more summer-like temperatures of over 30° C at the finish in New York. Climate change is not without consequences, if we are to believe François Gabart: “In the last 2 hours between the warm Gulf Stream and the cold Labrador current, we have had rapid transitions, changing from very cold damp foggy areas to much warmer areas in just a few minutes. It’s very changeable. What’s more, I nearly caught a cold. I sneezed the odd time!” I hope that the heat in New York will do us good and that we’ll have a good finish in good weather, with a beautiful sunset, like for the English transatlantic (The Transat Bakerly 2016, Ed.)”

 

After a cold spell, the heat is on
