Na cilj je stigao i Kristian i to kao osmi. Prije njega liniju cilja u Bahia de Brasil su presjekli Adrien Hardy (Brossard) i Yan Riou (Chameleon). Hardy je stigao noćas oko ponoći, a sat kasnije stigao je i Yan, a ubrzo nakon njega Kristian. Razlika između Yana i Kristiana je bila svega nekoliko milja.
Slijedeći se očekuju Francis Salabert (Aréas Insurance), Peter Laureyssens (Ecover) i Andraz Mihelin. Tko će od njih biti u Top 10 još se ne zna. nadajmo se da će biti i Andraž. Iza njih su Amerikanac Clayton Burkhalter (Acadia) i mediteranac Matthieu Casanas (Ville de Balaruc les bains) . To ih je 13, a onda u slijedećoj grupi nadamo se će doći i Šime.
Sada se znaju i detalji o rušenju Hardievog jarbola. To što je napravio nasred Atlantika pravo je majstorstvo i zaslužuje posebno priznanje za njega. Evi izjave Hardya u Google prevodu sa francuskog:
"I slept very quietly in and the boat gently near typed on a sea just formed in 15 knots of wind when the mast fell. The cadène who holds the forestay at the front of the boat while simply torn. I was in the middle of the Atlantic and the first and only idea that comes at such times is abandonment, with the galleys to bring the boat in gear fortune to land accessible. Or the choices were limited because the style bearing, I would have needed to try to rally Guyana or the Caribbean, more than 10 days at sea, however, that I had only six days to live. I began to rethink Bahia and a means of remâter alone ... "
A repair "at the Parlier"
The all-carbon wing mast Brossard is a long tube 12 meters high, weighing approximately 50 kg. By falling, it has led him mainsail and solent and rigging current. The boat looks like the Raft of Medusa and yet Adrien, already the victim of a similar mishap this year during the Transgascogne (He had joined La Rochelle with the mast on deck ...), échaffaude plans and maneuvers to surrender its mast upright, only on the Atlantic, bumped by a swell of the North West and South fraîchissant alize is ... Following is worthy of the most unlikely episodes Mac Gyver. Under the grains, Adrien will as a first step on its end outside the jibe 3 meters, vertically. He will serve as a hoist to swing the mast upright. The mainsail is painstakingly drawn on deck, even if it means sacrificing corkline. The mast then bat on the side of the plan Magnen. Adrien will set it on the front of the boat but in the swell and tape it is threatening to break or punch hull: "On many occasions I have used a thigh, calf, arm for Cushioning and protection my boat. I was covered in bruises ... " In his haubannant jibe, Adrien will be sent to make his first spar in a vertical position. But fixing the ball is too far back and mast violently on the chandeliers in the back of a boat he crushes its mass. "This time it's damn, it had to break" Adrien said. "This is completely false and Adrien resumed its operation, this time trying to lift itself by the 50 kilos of the mast, after decreased pressure from its shrouds. But to no avail, because mollissant, haubans do more mast sliding either side of the cockpit ... " And Adrien again put his body in screen to prevent the mast to go into the water. "It was starting to have blood everywhere, and once again I raidissais my guy is the tip off that started to pierce the bridge ..." Says there today in a smile .. "It was a little anything ..." Anything? Not really no. For in ironing yet another halyard at the base of the mast, he finally managed to place it on his ball. The mast now held on the back thanks to the runner on the sides with the guy ... Yet to consolidate a forestay at the front, but it must first rebuild a cadène able to redeem the efforts of the mast, and perhaps a possible gennaker. Adrien there attele and under the grain of recent miasmas of the pot with black, it prepares its tissue in his cockpit pending thinning enabling it to raise its carbon fabrics, to polymerize through ultrafast resins; "I prayed for the sun to come ..." He came and Adrien rebuild in record time its cadène.
Six hours of effort and heading toward Bahia
"I mast at 6 o'clock in the morning 30. At 12 hours, the mast was standing. Twelve hours drying and I repartais, slowly to begin with, then more m'enhardissant, sending the entire canvas, and the next day, reaching into the trade winds, I sent the pole and the gennaker ... I did everything then between 12 and 15 knots ... I am left in the 10th position, and I finished sixth. I did not win the Transat 6.50, but I am proud of what I did. I have not abandoned. "
