    Would he want to? Given just how far he would be able to paddle a 60' boat, even one as light as his, I would have thought he would be far better off using the time to get some decent sleep.

    Cléac'h has got handles on the inboard end of the dali foils, and a sliding seat in between. It's why he's ahead.

    nb. I made that up.
