Route du Rhum update

Latest arrivals into the French Caribbean hotspot, Miranda Merron has an encounter + 1100GMT positions

Tuesday November 26th 2002, Author: James Boyd, Location: Transoceanic
The third and final 60ft trimaran to arrive was Lalou Roucayrol on Banque Populaire who finished at 19:46:00 GMT in a time of 14 days 07 hours 01 minute 00 seconds.

Roucayrol's race was remarkable because he was the only 60ft trimaran who didn't stop, but was held up when he attempted a flier by sailing to the north of the Azores High. At times this route was looking good (the high was shifting east) but then the high reformed right in his path.
