On the night of October 31st to November 1st the whole world celebrated Halloween. Participants in the Transat Jacques Vabre transatlantic regatta were not left out. However, to issue an ultimatum «Trick or treat? » the members of the twin crews could only say to each other. But it seems that Germany's BorisHerrmann and Britain's Will Harris are having a great time aboard their IMOCA 60 Malizia II anyway.
The team was in the part of the fleet that decided to get away from the mainland rather than move along the coast. Now that half of the competitors have finally turned south too and are passing the Azores. The leaders, on the other hand, who had turned immediately to the south, are approaching the Canaries, with IMOCA Malizia II on number 17 in the overall ranking. Herrmann and Harris are 309 nautical miles behind Charal'sJérémie Beyou and ChristopherPratt.
