After Jourdain's double, here comes Lemonchois ?

After Franck Cammas (Groupama 3), overall winner of this ninth edition of the Route du Rhum-La Banque Postale, also topped a podium comprising Francis Joyon (IDEC) and Thomas Coville (Sodebo), so now the podium for the very closely matched IMOCA Open 60’s was completed early Monday morning by Marc Guillemot (Safran). He was greeted on the dockside by a relaxed looking, scrubbed up Armel Le Cléac'h who was second while Roland Jourdain (Veolia Environnement) of course made Route du Rhum-La Banque Postale history early Sunday morning when he successfully won the IMOCA class for the second successive edition. Jean-Pierre Dick (Virbac-Paprec 3) arrived not long after Guillemot, just losing out on third in the final miles of the race, and Vincent Riou was due in fifth. Meantime young Christopher Pratt in sixth is having his mettle tested with no power on DCNS 1000. He has been hand steering since Thursday and hopes to be in by Tuesday night. But this ninth edition of the Route du Rhum-La Banque Postale a transatlantic race which will continue to deliver. Lionel Lemonchois (Prince de Bretagne) leads the Multi 50 class by 60 miles with 84 miles to go and is on course to be the second double Rhum winner after Jourdain. The overall winner from the last, 2006 edition is due in this evening (Monday). And in the Class 40 fleet from 400 miles of lateral separation to more like 60 this morning, Thomas Ruyant (Destination Dunkerque) has now come south and repositioned to windward of second placed Nico Troussel (Credit Mutuel de Bretagne) and leads by 64 miles. The leaders are expected Thursday.
