 Solo Around the World Record  Fran├žois Gabart FRA  Day 26
At half-distance - 16'000nm - François Gabart FRA is now "on his way home". The South Pacific is still quite rough with a 40kn wind and 7m waves. Gabart has reduced the speed to advance in rhythm with the waves, without overtaking them, as the stress for the equipment would be too much. Nevertheless, he kept the advantage on the record of 695nm. In three days from now, he will probably round Cape Horn, the last way point before the home stretch to France.
