The skipper of Région Normandie is looking forward to the finish. His watermaker has broken down.


"It's going well. We've got some pretty hairy conditions downwind, but it's really good to be sailing flat. I spent 15 days on a 35° incline with guys throwing water jumps in my face. I didn't know upwind sailing very well, but now it's fine. I don't want it anymore! I hope the finish is just around the corner. I'm really happy. It's unexpected to be here, given my experience. I've pushed myself to unimaginable limits. Physically, I don't know how I did it. Well done to Thibaut, he had a great race and he's lucky to have made it. I've got three liters of water left to finish. I'm allowed a glass every 15 minutes. The desalinator doesn't work, so I have to ration myself.

I look at the map every 5 minutes. This is my 10th routing since this morning! I found it very, very hard. I found myself in seas I'd never seen before. It's one thing to see it on Youtube, but it's something else in real life!
