Transat Jacques Vabre 2017: Sodebo Ultim leads Edmond de Rothschild

Tracking clip I made from the official Transat Jacques Vabre web . Sodebo Ultim sailed by Thomas Coville & Jean Luc Nelias  is leading over Edmond de Rothschild Tri foiler with its central T dagger. Maybe too much drag in the end as shown by Maserati vs the standard floating MOD70 Phaedo 3?
Navigation plays much in these Atlantic crossings too as shown above.

Sodebo Ultim was re launched as a foiler earlier this year , but we couldn't identify a central T dagger as Edmond de Rothschild /  Gitana is featuring.

To compare perf check video top left rankings with speed data. View clip in full screen & 1080HD.
