This has evolved into between Hugo Boss and Armel Le Cleac'h's Banque Populaire who has been holding a narrow (10-20nm) lead for the last couple of days.
At the moment they are blasting along on port but about to hit starboard tack again (the weather in the above image is at +3hrs).
At which point Hugo Boss will be foiling again. Watch this to see how excited Alex is with the idea...
Yes that's right, VERY.
