The battle is also raging among the media men! Despite the Dantean conditions in the Bay of Biscay which scooped up the Ultim fleet in the opening hours, the four onboard reporters have shared some quite incredible moments with us. However, this morning, Yann Riou was the first of them to treat us to some aerial footage filmed from a drone flown from aboard the boat. We’ll leave you to admire the artist’s work!
