Francois Gabart passes la tête à l'Anglais à 5h15 local (0915TU

Francois Gabart this morning starts his final descent along the tricky shores of Guadeloupe's Basse Terre after passing la tête à l'Anglais à 5h15 local (0915TU). He is expected to finish between 1300hrs and 1500hrs local time (1700hrs and 1900hrs TU). Gabart, on Macif, has a lead of 65 miles on second placed Jeremie Beyou but will be hoping for a better final passage of the island than Lalou Roucayrol who took 12 hours to negotiate these final miles. 

He is on course to win the IMOCA Class at his first attempt, with a record time in his sights
