At 11am local time stage 2 of La Solitaire du Figaro will start taking the 35 solo skippers on a 404 nautical mile journey from Saint Brieuc to Dunkirk. The challenges ahead include navigating through significant shipping traffic, and also sandbanks, which have caught out some skippers in the past.. These course restrictions mean less room for manoeuvers and limited opportunity for varied strategies across the fleet.
The final stretch will be especially difficult managing currents and the cross-Channel shipping zone between Calais and Dover. It will be important for the skippers to stay alert and reserve energy for a testing finish..
