Alan Roura (Hublot) 13th on The Transat CIC in IMOCA

Roura is pleased with his race considering he had little training time with the boat this year after they only launched at a week before the start. He suffered a damaged port foil a few days before the finish and lost out a little in the light but Alan is happy to have felt more in the match....something to build on as he heads for his third Vendee Globe at the age of just 31....His finish is one place better than his RALB in a stronger field


Finish time: 11:04:36 (UTC)

Race time: 9d 23h 34mn 36sec

Distance covered: 3,229.81 nautical miles

Gap to first place: 1d 16h 41mn 4sec

Average speed (on the great circle route): 12.31 knots

Actual average speed: 13.48 knots

“I am so happy and proud to cross the line in 13th place, not a place I was expecting two days ago, but it is part of the job in a mechanical sport to be fixing things, but it doesn’t matter Here I have proven I am in the match, in the game with the others, and I am really happy considering the little time we have got between the putting the boat back in the water and the start of the race. I am happy, I am so tired, it is a short race, intense, every day still there was something different challenge but the boat is in good condition other than the broken port foil. I am looking forwards to attaching the lines to the dock and getting a bit of rest.” Roura
