“I spent an hour cracking nuts”: the endless wait for the skippers of the Jacques-Vabre transatlantic race

Will leave, will not leave? This is the big question for the entire fleet remaining at dock for the Transat Jacques Vabre. If the fastest, the Ultim left this Sunday and went before the tempête Ciaran, the other crews, stopped in Lorient or not yet leaving Le Havre due to climatic competitions linked to storm Ciaran, are still waiting to know when they will be able to resume the race. “The possibility mentioned yesterday of seeing the IMOCAs set off on Sunday is now excluded, in particular because of the strengthening of the westerly wind, which is very impactful off the coast of Le Havre,” explained race director Francis Le Goff on Wednesday, November 1.
