In the speed runs, SMA came out on top completing the run in 4 minutes and 59 seconds, ahead of the most recent boat, Saint Michel-Virbac, which has already shown what she can do (5 minutes and 28 seconds) and never one to miss out, PRB (5 minutes, 30 seconds). Finally, with a bigger crew in a north-easterly wind that had strengthened to around 17 knots on Sunday, the IMOCA fleet really took off. The result was that PRB improved on her own race record set back in 2011. She completed the race in just one hour and eight minutes. "That goes to show that we are still up there and gives a real boost to the team," declared Vincent Riou.
