The news has been better for Thomas Coville who from being 1300 miles behind nine days ago, is now back in front of Francis Joyon’s pace. In Miami, the Bacardi Cup concluded with a win by a point for France’s Guillaume Florent and Pascal Rambeau while after a disqualification in the penultimate race, Seve Jarvin’s Gotta Love It 7 crew came from behind to claim the Winning Appliances JJ Giltinan 18 ft skiff championship. Oracle Racing has had its first outing on the team’s own AC45. Meanwhile Alinghi has just published a new book.
