IMOCA Open 60 – Vendée Globe – Day 74 – Dalin 98nm ahead of Herrmann new on 2nd

The leader Charlie Dalin FRA (Apivia) still has 2200 miles to go until the finish in Les Sables dOlonne. The leading group will reach a last flat transition zone today, which will probably be decisive for the race: Whoever of the leading group, which is still sailing close together, reaches the fresh westerly winds first, has a good chance of winning. 98 miles behind Dalin, Boris Herrmann GER (SeaExplorer) has moved up to second place. Thomas Ruyant FRA (LinkedOut) follows in 3rd place, 108 miles behind. Damien Seguin FRA (Groupe Apicil, Non-Foiler) has moved up to 5th place. He will be benefiting from good easterly wind conditions today. The race tracker and the reports.
