Of the remaining 344 miles to the finish line, 300 are the distance between Ushant and the Strait of Dover: all the Channel to sail upwind with important tidal currents and a very dense maritime traffic. These are the last 300 miles before turning left and start the last part of the route, climbing the estuary and the river Thames up to London.

Went first to the East to be able then to head North: the upwind tacking sequence against the steady northeastern breeze is going on off the coast of Spanish Galicia. According to some weather forecasts, the wind should turn to the East in the next few hours maintaining 20 knots of intensity, this could allow Maserati Multi 70 to follow a more direct route towards Ushant island and the tip of Brittany, now less than 300 miles away.
