Par Virtual Regatta - November 5 2015

Thomas Coville and Jean-Luc Nelias have slingshotted to a 100-mile mile lead in front of the entire Virtual Regatta fleet. They are expected to arrive in Itajai before Saturday. 

The symbolic equatorial line has been crossed by most skippers now.

Multi 50: Coming in behind the Ultime class, 500 miles north of the Ultimes the Multi 50s crossed the equatorial line with Istishia in the lead in company with Boxing Banana and the Portuguese skipper Sagres 76 CNV.
