IMOCA Open 60 – Vendée Globe – Day 39 – Damage for LinkedOut


Last night, the second-ranked Thomas Ruyant FRA reported a major water leak on his LinkedOut, which immediately forced him to stop racing and pump out water to determine the cause of the leak. Meanwhile, Ruyant is back in the race, with a deficit of 127nm on Yannick Bestaven FRA (Mau00eetre Coq). Charlie Dalin (Apivia) remains in 3rd place, 153nm behind. Jean Le Cam FRA (Yes we Cam) in 4th place is the first non-Foiler to follow 498nm back. Close behind are Damien Séguin FRA (Groupe Apicil, Non-Foiler) and Boris Herrmann GER (SeaExplorer, Foiler) in 5th and 6th place. —– The race tracker and the reports.
