Guadeloupe on the horizon

Ellen MacArthur leads the charge towards the Caribbean

Friday November 22nd 2002, Author: James Boyd, Location: Transoceanic
Overnight Ellen has continued her breakneck pace towards the Route du Rhum finish line at Pointe a Pitre, Guadeloupe and has yet again put in a 24 hour run of 347 miles. As a result she has pulled out a 85 mile lead over Mike Golding on Ecover.

Astern Michel Desjoyeaux on the 60ft trimaran Geant still has 631.4 miles to go. He is currently 423.2 miles astern of Kingfisher (remember the 60ft tris started 24 hours later) His average speed for the last 24 hours has been 425.2 miles which indicates that he may slip ahead of Kingfisher on overall elapsed time for the course. But it will be very very close... Will this be a re-enactment of the Vendee Globe or will Ellen have her victory and enter the history books as the Route du Rhum's first ever overall winner sailing a monohull?
