But in light conditions and spring times she will have to time her arrival carefully

Geronimo is on her final approach to the finish line of her attempt on the Jules Verne Trophy. At 0900 GMT the Cape Gemini Schrader Electric trimaran was making 8 knots heading directly for the line which she should reach tonight.

In the absence of wind, Olivier de Kersauson and his 10 men crew should benefit from the favourable push of a spring tide particularly strong around this time of the spring equinox. These currents can reach more than seven knots near Ouessant.

As a result Olivier de Kersausons' maxi trimaran will have to plan their approach their arrival at the finish line carefully otherwise they mind find they don't cross it!
