IMOCA Open 60 – Vendée Globe – Day 41 – Close up in anticyclone calms


During the past night UTC, the leaders were decelerated by a high-pressure calm zone without deviation possibilities because of the iceberg exclusion zone in the south. Accordingly, the fleet closed up even more. Yannick Bestaven FRA (Mau00eetre Coq) continues to lead 35nm ahead of Charlie Dalin FRA (Apivia). Already 145nm behind followed Thomas Ruyant FRA (LinkedOut) on the 3rd position. Jean Le Cam FRA (Yes we Cam) still holds the 4th place as best non-Foiler. He could reduce the gap to 363nm. Another 30nm back is Boris Herrmann GER (SeaExplorer) in 5th place. —– The race tracker and the reports.
