A colourful first day off the Caribbean coast. Having set out from Fort-de-France 24 hours ago, 30 of the 32 solo sailors entered in the Retour à La Base race are finding their feet single-handed and still enjoying some of the gentler weather.

Clarisse Crémer's crewman in the Transat Jacques Vabre, Alan Roberts from the UK, then analyses the strategy on this highly demanding return leg. With a map to back it up, you'll see that the menu is copious.

Finally, a very emotional moment for Tanguy Le Turquais and the Lazare team. With Félix de Navacelle, they arrived at the finish line of the Transat Jacques Vabre, just eight hours before the line closed. A gamble that paid off!

Victim of a collision at the start in Le Havre, the skipper had stopped for several days to repair his boat in Lorient before getting back into the race... against the routing. The competitors were a long way off.

Now he just has time to enjoy the moment and give his daughter a big hug before setting off again single-handed... towards Lorient. We wish him the best of luck and take our hats off to him!
