IMOCA Open 60 – Vendée Globe – Day 40 – Pacific Ocean welcome!

Yannick Bestaven FRA (Mau00eetre Coq) was the first to reach the Pacific Ocean yesterday. The first chaser is now again Charlie Dalin FRA (Apivia) 102nm behind. Thomas Ruyant FRA (LinkedOut) is 176nm in arrear after suffering a water intrusion yesterday and having to pump his boat empty. No damage to the boat: the rough seas opened the hatch covers on the forecastle. The pursuing group was able to make up some ground. Jean Le Cam FRA (Yes we Cam, Non-Foiler) 418nm back, is now in 4th. Boris Herrmann GER (SeaExplorer, Foiler) follows in 5th, 435nm behind. —– The race tracker and the reports.
