Le Blevec Fourth, Just 25mins 41secs off the podium after Cascais pitstop

Early Saturday morning 15 Nov at 00:10:18hrs UTC, Yves Le Blevec brought Actual across the finish line of La Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe to take fourth place. His elapsed time is 12d11h10m18s averaging 11.84kts over the theoretical course. INrality he sailed 4646 miles at 15.53kts average. His delta to race winner of the Multi50s is 1d5h56m23s. Although he sailed a great opening couple of days , leading or chellenging for the lead, Le Blevec's race was hurt when he had to make a techncial pitstop into Cascais to repair his wind instruments. It should have been a quick stop but he had to go back again and in the end the pitstops took eight hours and he re-started with a deficit of 400 miles on the leader. But day by day he pulled back miles and in the end was just 25mins and 41 seconds off the podium place taken by Gilles Lamire
