I don't know if this has been mentioned elsewhere but Pierre-Andre Huglo seems to be doing rather well in this event:

There is a video of him departing on YouTube, search -    Longue Route 2018

Fresh Herring rounded Cape Horn over Christmas and Pierre-Andre is now heading into the Atlantic.
Keeping it simple, he removed his engine for extra stowage and is sailing with hanked on headsails.

I have just had the yearbook and see there is a nice interview with Pierre-Andre, so I am behind the curve here!
 
 Well good luck to him, he is making great progress and it will be interesting to see if he can beat the GGR winner's time.  He has already overtaken their fourth place despite setting out much later, from 100 miles up channel.
