The Vendee Globe is a singlehanded non-stop race round the world starting and finishing in Les Sables d’Olonne, France. It is the most challenging yacht race in the world and also might be the most challenging event in all of sports. The boats used are 60-footers designed to the IMOCA rule, which allows a lot of freedom in the design. However, designers might be innovative, but also realize these boats will be venturing into the roaring forties and screaming fifties, where conditions are extreme, so safety becomes the major design concern. The competitors train for years to compete in this event, and many return for the next one, just hoping to win the holy grail of yacht racing. This race is dominated by the French, who have a passion for this kind of racing, but there are always a few from other countries hoping to best the masters.
This write-up is a condensed version of press releases issued by the organizers of the Vendee Globe.
Believe it or not after 64 days of racing, 14 of the entrants have already rounded Cape Horn and passed the Falkland Islands for the run up the Atlantic Ocean to the finish at Les Sables d’Olonne. The new leader is Yannick Bestaven on MAITRE COQ IV, who has stretched his lead to over 200 miles and since our last report we have had only two other retirements.
7 December, Day 29
In the lead is Charlie Dalin’s APIVIA followed by Thomas Ruyant’s LINKEDOUT. They are now in northwesterly winds on the edge of a low, which should give them ideal conditions to reach top speed.
However, 600 miles behind the leaders the breeze is 45 knots with horizontal rain and racers are having a problem trying to keep their boats moving forward because if they do not maintain speed the next wave breaks over the transom. In these conditions you slow so as not to break anything.
In the 20th position is Britain’s Pip Hare in MEDALLIA now nearing the Cape of Good Hope, the first of three Capes the racers will round in this race. MEDALLIA was originally SUPERBIGOU and is 20 years old. She is just 12 miles behind Didac Costa of Spain in ONE PLANET-ONE OCEAN, the former KINGFISHER sailed by Ellen MacArthur 20 years ago. Pip says that Didac’s boat is quicker especially in heavier air as it has more beam and can power through the waves.
8 December, Day 30
Thirty-three racers entered the 9th Vendee Globe and the statistics are impressive. One poll says that 49 percent of the French will follow the race, which is more than the Tour de France. The start was carried on 41 TV channels in 190 countries. The big gain came from Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Spain and Switzerland. There were also huge coverage gains via their website and social media. In the first month there were 400,000 viewers more than the last Vendee Globe in 2016.
New requirements for this race had the boats and the sailors better prepared. They had sailed more races and more miles, but despite this they will still find different conditions in this race. The new foilers will certainly be tested in the Southern Ocean.
However, the biggest challenge thus far has been the very active weather systems, which has created confused seas. The weather caused a slower than normal southern run to the Cape of Good Hope and this makes some wonder if the record of 74 days set in the last Vendee Globe will be broken.
Of the 33 starters, just six boats have retired. The average retirements for this race is about 50 percent, but with the preparations all the entries did, there may be a lot less retirements.
8 December, Day 30
With a 250-mile lead Charlie Dalin was riding the edge of a front and putting miles between his closest competitors, who were faced with an 800-mile-wide weather system with winds over 60 knots and 24-foot seas. Two racers were having autopilot problems and this has dropped them back. Charlie will be overtaken by this front so his challenges are coming.
The leader has completed 38 percent of the race. In the last Vendee Globe the leader had already passed Cape Leeuwin (Australia) and at this point the racers are only in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
9 December, Day 31
Charlie Dalin is out of the Indian Ocean and is about 1250-miles or three days from Cape Leeuwin. When the front reached him, he was racing with a tripled reefed main and no headsail much of the time. He saw 55 knots of wind and pretty good sized seas, but had no issues. The wind has dropped to 30 knots and is shifting to the sou’west.
Damien Seguin on GROUPE APICIL is trying to solve an electrical issue, which effects his autopilots and battery charging system. Any issue beyond just sailing your boat and taking care of yourself can be a major challenge. One skipper said that just to eat and drink you had to reduce sail. Also, the sounds inside the boat are incredible and the boat’s motion can be violent much of the time.
Jérémie Beyou on board CHARAL restarted, after making repairs, nine days after the start. He now has a chance to finally start making inroads into the fleet with his fast foiling latest generation racer. Beyou is 130 miles behind 27th placed Sébastien Destremau (MERCI) and should pass him in the next 24-36 hours.
10 December, Day 32
The big storm has passed the leaders Dalin and Ruyant, who are now enjoying much calmer conditions. Dalin thought that both he and his boat were at their limit during the storm.
In third is Yannick Bestaven on MAÎTRE COQ, who has been ocean racing for 20 years. In the 2008-9 Vendee Globe his boat was the only one using renewable energy sources, but just after the start she was dismasted in a storm in the Bay of Biscay. He then spent time building Watt & Sea hydrogenator business, which is used on almost all the racers in this event. MAÎTRE COQ was designed by VPLP-Verdier and launched as SAFRAN in 2014. In the last Vendee Globe she was forced into Cape Town, South Africa with steering issues where she retired. She was purchased by her sponsor and they chose Yannick to skipper her for this race. With the calmer conditions it is felt he will move up the position ladder.
11 December, Day 33
The leader Dalin is sailing inside a high-pressure system and is watching his lead evaporate. Dalin is in light air and the two chasing him are enjoying 15-25 knots of wind. Despite the gains Dalin should be able to stay ahead of his competitors so long as he does not make any mistakes.
It was a great day for Japanese skipper Kojiro Shiraishi (DMG MORI) as he crossed the Cape of Good Hope. In the last Vendee Globe he had broken his mast and was forced to retire at Cape Town.
Fabrice Amedeo announced that he was abandoning the race due to computer failures, His first computer went down off Cape Finisterre and the backup went down while he was 130 miles from the Cape of Good Hope.
12 December Day 34
Dalin (APIVIA) is still 200 miles from Cape Leeuwin, but his lead is now 81 miles over the next competitor. When asked if he had any issues he assured them that it was just light air that slowed his progress. His time should be about 34½ days and this compared to the record is about six days slower. However, in the past it has been just two or three boats competing for the top spot, but this time there are 14 boats in the lead pack, all within a 1,000 miles of the leader.
Louis Burton (BUREAU VALLEE 2) is dropping in the fleet and has said that he has an issue with the mainsail lock and autopilots. He also said that he is using a hydrogenator, despite the fact that it is slowing his progress. He added that he does not have enough fuel for the generator to run it for the remainder of the race. He also compared this race to the last one saying the conditions last time made it so they did not have to make many course changes and this time the weather is constantly changing.
Ari Huusela (STARK) is the last boat to cross the Cape of Good Hope. He has been planning this race for almost 20 years and is happy to be entering the Indian Ocean.
Just ahead of ARI was Jérémie Beyou (CHARAL), who restarted 9 days after the start of the race. His time to the Cape of Good Hope compared to the rest of the fleet placed him 15th out of 33 racers.
13 December, Day 35
Over the last 24 hours Dalin (APIVIA) has been running at a constant speed of about 24 knots. He also passed the second of the three Capes, Cape Leeuwin at 1125 hrs. UTC. Three hours and 9 minutes later Yannick Bestaven (MAÎTRE COQ) crossed the Cape. This race has been slower by 6 days, 1 hour and 53 minutes, then the last race. It was thought with the new foil technology that this would make this race faster, but the conditions have not been favourable causing the slower pace.
It was noted that Bestaven has made up over 300 miles and is with Ruyant. Also Isabelle Joschke (MACSF) has been posting great speed in the ninth position. In looking at the courses taken by Isabelle and other experienced ocean racers they make smooth course changes. Those on the foilers make sudden alterations as it is easier to change course then to make sail changes. Isabelle added that she goes fast when she can, but also realizes that you need to protect the boat and keep yourself rested and ready for anything. You cannot win if you cannot finish. Her expectations was for uncomfortable seas, but there has been more than she thought she would have. She added that it has been a real challenge, especially being alone at the end of the earth.
14 December, Day 36
Dalin is closing in on the halfway point of the race, which he should reach in a few days. The racers in the lead group are going well, but the Mascaregne high, which comprises much of the South Indian Ocean, will cause them to slow. The leaders hope that when they enter the Pacific Ocean that the swells become longer and more even.
How close is some of the competition, well eight racers passed Cape Leeuwin within the last 24 hours.
Tears were discovered in two of the headsails on Maxime Sorel’s (V & B – MAYENNE).
Then news arrived that Dalin’s APIVIA had suffered damage to his port foil 900 miles southwest of Tasmania. At this point they were surveying the damage and figuring out how to make repairs if necessary.
15 December, Day 37
Dalin or his team were offering much information as to the damage to APIVIA. It is known that the damage is to the lower support and he has strengthened the foil attachment. With this damage, Ruyant and LINKED OUT have taken over first place. The lead group is heading south towards the Antarctic Exclusion Zone, which they cannot go below without a penalty.
Behind the three leading boats are five racers all within sight of each other. This is pretty amazing considering they have sailed halfway around the world and they are still that close together.
Besthaven (MAÎTRE COQ) climbed his mast to make a repair on his J2 headsail, which he really wants in the Pacific Ocean.
The sail repair on V & B – MAYENNE was still ongoing and was taking a toll on Maxime Sorel. He has the sail inside the boat, which takes up the whole interior. He made repairs to about 4 metres and will put it up shortly before the sea state increases since he has to climb the mast to do it.
16 December, Day 38
Bestaven and Ruyant are now battling it out for the top spot just 15 miles apart as they run across the top of the Exclusion Zone and leaving the Indian Ocean in their wake. Ruyant thought that Bestaven’s older design might be quicker downwind in 25 knots of wind. They might be able to stay on this port tack for at least the next three days.
Dalin has made repairs to the port side foil housing and bearing by hanging from the halyard. He needed to go back and forth about 30 times to the cockpit to get this repair accomplished and all before the sunset. He is now back racing and is 140 miles behind the leaders.
International Jury Decisions
The decision of the International Jury was announced for three of the four racers that assisted in the rescue of Kevin Escoffier on 30 November. The redress is: Sébastien Simon (ARKEA PAPREC) retired from the race so no redress was given; Boris Herrmann (SEAEXPLORER – YACHT CLUB DE MONACO) 6 hours; Yannick Bestaven (MAÎTRE-COQ) 10 hrs. 15mins.; and Jean le Cam (YES WE CAM!): 16 hrs. 15 mins. The time will be subtracted when the racers finish.
17 December, Day 39
Ruyant discovered the forward compartment of LINKEDOUT flooded, which was caused by water pressure from waves washing over the deck moving the handles of the hatch and allowing water to gain entry. The compartment was freed of water by starting the high-pressure pumps.
Kevin Escoffier arrived at Les Sables d’Olonne to thank the race committee for their part in his rescue after his boat sank. He commented that his major problem was that he could not get his safety grab bag as it was already underwater. He then got into the liferaft with just his survival suit. He was hoping that the rule for the placement of the safety grab bag be higher. He added that he hopes to be back in the race in 2024.
Louis Burton (BUREAU VALLÉE 2) was sailing to Macquarie Island, where he would make repairs to his mast track, halyard hooks and J2 headsail. He will be looking for a sheltered place so he can climb the mast in relative safety. The damage was caused by a violent gybe. The mast track will be cut away and replaced. This will allow him to raise the main higher as now he sails with no less than two reefs in it.
18 December, Day 40
The leaders are not liking the light conditions between Tasmania and New Zealand as those behind them are quickly gaining. Bestaven is only leading by 50 miles over Dalin. Ruyant, who is in third, has gone to the north hoping to find more wind when the low arrives. It is all about timing and being in the right position when the weather systems move by.
This race is still slower than the last Vendee Globe. At this stage the leader was half-way closer to Cape Horn, which Armel Le Cléac’h rounded on 23 December. He said that the weather was an issue, but maybe the loss of two races before this race has some of the competitors a little more conservative than usual.
19 December, Day 41
More problems for Louis Burton (BUREAU VALLÉE 2) as he heads for the Macquarie Island. For the last 24 hours he has been hand-steering with no rest due to the loss of his autopilots. He is now about 90 miles from the island and will need to dig deep to accomplish the repairs with no sleep.
20 December, Day 42
Bestaven is still in the lead and is in better wind than Dalin or Ruyant. Unfortunately, the weather pattern in front of them will be a challenge as a high-pressure system is directly in front of them. It is thought that 11 boats could be within 800 miles of each other when they reach Cape Horn about the first of the year. This will set up a great dash to the finish.
Burton has arrived at Macquarie Island, set his boat in the lee and climbed the mast to make repairs to his mast track. He was up there about two hours and was able to make a partial repair. He was forced down due to sea conditions and is thinking of going into Lusitania Bay and anchoring.
21 December, Day 43
Bestaven now has more than a 125-mile lead over second place Dalin. The next weather system has been difficult to judge, but should move south into their path as they look for the next low. There was a good chance that Bestaven would break out and get more wind and increase his lead.
Burton is back in the race after making repairs at Macquairie Island. He went up the mast three times, and the time spent cost him 400 miles.
Sébastien Destremau has developed a problem with his autopilot and steering system. He is moving northward to lessen the sea conditions, which hopefully will allow him to make repairs.
22 December, Day 44
Bestaven is sailing just above the Exclusion Zone hoping to get out of the high-pressure system he is trapped in causing him to lose miles to Dalin and Ruyant. What is worse is that this weather system is moving east at the same speed they are. This system is affecting the first six racers and this will allow those in the back of the pack to gain on them.
23 December, Day 45
The last Vendee Globe race was a drag race, but this one is dominated by strategy. The strategy is finding the best wind and keeping the boat sailing fast in variable light winds. Bestaven looks like he might break out of the high leaving Dalin and Ruyant trapped.
Further back in the pack there are some interesting battles with racers so close they can see their competitors.
24 December, Day 46
Bestaven is 300 miles ahead of third place Ruyant, but Dalin has taken a more direct line and this could slide him into the lead.
A great battle is between Pip Hare and Arnaud Boissières for 16th. Pip is sailing a 1999 design and is competing with newer racers with better funding and doing extremely well.
25 December, Day 47
Bestaven looks as though he could extend his lead. He has gone north to get into the low and hopes for downwind conditions in a few days. As he heads for the low he is trying to figure out how to use it to his advantage.
Ruyant, who earlier had been in the top three, has now dropped to seventh, 265 miles back of the leader.
Pip is trying to outrun a low that is chasing her and four others near her. The winds are about 30 knots with gusts up to 38, and these should last the night.
26 December, Day 48
It is amazing to watch leads evaporate, as Bestaven has just 30 miles between him and second place Dalin. Those in the top ten are still trapped in the low and only making about 8 knots. This has allowed others to gain on the front three. Burton, who was forced to stop and make repairs at Macquarie Island was 890 miles back of the leader when he restarted. He is now back just 394 miles.
Alan Roura (LA FABRIQUE) has developed an issue with the hydraulic rams. On 28 November he lost all his hydraulic oil when a valve failed. This means he cannot cant the keel. He and his team are trying to devise a solution to the issue.
27 December: Day 49
Bestaven has hit the new weather system in his trek south and is gaining separation on second place Dalin. Dalin has been forced to sail north to keep out of the Exclusion Zone and this should allow Bestaven to gain even more miles.
The low, packing winds of 40+ knots, is coming down from the northwest and should hit the leaders as they round Cape Horn.
Burton (BUREAU VALLÉE 2) has now caught the front pack and is 60 miles from 10th place. The question is whether he can hold onto the low and keep gaining.
28 December, Day 50
The leaders near Point Nemo with 2,000 miles to go to get to Cape Horn as Bestaven celebrated his 48th birthday. His present was a growing lead over Dalin, which is now up to 133 miles.
Boris Hermann is in 7th and enjoying 30 knots of breeze, which is pushing him along at 17 knots. He is enjoying the battle, but is keeping it all in perspective. You can push, but if you push too hard things can break and end your chance of completing the race. Boris said that his boat is still 100 percent, which many of the others cannot say. This part of the race is mentally and physically challenging. It is all a balancing act trying to keep the boat sailing fast and getting rest.
Benjamin Dutreux (OMIA-WATER FAMILY) went up his mast to release his J2 headsail. He said that he was tossed around between the mast and sail, but managed to get the sail down. The J2 had a large tear, which needs to be repaired.
The guessing game for many of the racers and those that are following the event is who will be on the five-place podium. At this point there are a number of possibilities.
29 December, Day 52
Damien Seguin (GROUPE APICIL) is now in third, just 9 miles in front of Ruyant. He is also just 40 miles behind Dalin. Seguin is hoping to be in the top five, but said there were still a lot of challenges ahead. He has been trying to stay rested and eat, but at times that has been challenging. Sailing has been difficult with the boat pounding a lot, but he is focused on getting to Cape Horn.
30 December, Day 53
The leaders are about 1300 miles from Cape Horn with 14 boats in the top group of racers. The challenge is still figuring out the best course to get there as the weather patterns develop. Right now, the leaders are between two low-pressure systems and soon the winds and seas will increase for the front three. The ones behind them need to avoid the light air trapped in the middle.
Another birthday took place as Clarisse Cremer (BANQUE POPULAIRE X) turned 31 right in the middle of nowhere.
31 December, Day 53
The two leaders are on one side of the low and the other 12 in the lead pack are on the other side. This means the front two are gaining a lot of separation as they average over 20 knots. Dalin received a black eye when his boat hit a wave hard throwing him into the companionway. It is expected to be tough conditions at Cape Horn with winds above 40 knots and seas over 20 feet. Those from 3rd to 11th are in light, variable winds, which has been a challenge speed-wise, but this will all change soon.
Pip Hare has overtaken Arnaud Boissières for 16th place and is now eying Alan Roura (LA FABRIQUE) in 15th.
1 January, Day 54
Dalin (APIVIA) was forced to slow to make repairs to his port foil and is now in third. The leaders are fighting wind gusts of 55 knots and 30-foot seas with just over 400 miles to go to Cape Horn. It is thought they would have to slow their boats making sure they survive the low.
Still amazing is that some of the competitors are in sight of each other. Isabelle Joschke (MACSF) is just two miles from Jean Le Cam and there is less than a mile between Boris Hermann and Benjamin Dutreux.
It is all about staying focused and being smart as to how much speed could be too much and end your dream. Any of the top 12 boats have a chance to at least finish on the podium.
2 January, Day 56
At 13:42 UTC Bestaven rounded Cape Horn and began his climb up the Atlantic Ocean. His time was 55 days and 22 minutes and is 8 days slower than the record.
Second place is Dalin, who is 160-miles back and third is Ruyant 458-miles behind.
Pip Hare has an issue with the wind indicator at the top of her mast and her autopilots are sailing on compass mode, which has to manually adjusted. She is looking for a better fix.
3 January, Day 57
Dalin (APIVIA) rounded Cape Horn at 439 hrs, 14 hours and 56 minutes behind Bestaven. The challenge now is to close the gap with Bestaven. This will be a challenge for both as weather conditions look unsettled. It must be remembered that Dalin is sailing with a damaged port foil and this could be an issue if he needs to be on port tack.
Bestaven was going more to the east trying to avoid the high and said that the storm he had off the Horn was the worst he had ever been in. He is hoping to stay in front of the high and get into the St. Helena trades in about 10 days.
Dalin said that he was out of ocean mode and back to regatta sailing. This means less sleep and more sail trimming.
4 January, Day 57
Thomas Ruyant, Damien Seguin and Benjamin Dutreux were next around Cape Horn. It was then expected five more would round in the next few hours, led amazingly by Louis Burton. After their rounding the Cape will be buffeted with heavy winds and seas. There is a lighthouse keeper on the very isolated Hornos Island. It is estimated that more than 800 ships and 10,000 sailors have met their demise here.
Isabelle Joschke developed a problem with the hydraulic ram to her keel and has been forced to sail with the keel centered. She had been in 8th, but now is 11th.
The high-pressure system north of the Falkland Islands is blocking the way north for the leaders.
5 January, Day 58
As the leaders head north the temps are rising in the sunshine. A problem for the leaders is that the data issued by weather modelling is not reliable. It is thought that leader Bestaven might escape the high and get sling shotted north.
Boris Hermann has ripped the leech of his mainsail on the shroud when trying to reef and was forced to sail around Cape Horn with just the J3 up in 40+ knots of wind. He has made the repair and is back racing.
Four boats rounded the Horn in less than four hours. The 9th to round was Giancarlo Pedote of Italy the first non-French racer. He was followed by Boris Hermann of Germany in 10th.
6 January, Day 59
Britain’s Pip Hare is still 1,300-miles from Cape Horn. She still has an issue with her autopilots and is having to manually adjust their course heading. She will sail right into the fierce winds and seas off the Horn. She has had little sleep as she sails downwind and is constantly monitoring the wind direction and making alterations to the autopilot.
Next around the Horn was Armel Tripon (L’OCCITAINE EN PROVENCE), who passed within 3 miles of the Horn.
Still slugging his way through the Pacific was Jérémie Beyou (CHARAL) who had to return to Les Sables d”Olonne to make repairs and restarted nine days after the start of the race. He said, “”I don’t know who invented the name Pacific, because I’ve never seen it peaceful in three circumnavigations of the world…” It is amazing how he has caught the fleet and made his way up to the 18th position and closing in on three just in front of him.
The lead pack is finding that there are three options as to how to head north. Bestaven is the only racer out of the high and soon to be in a low.
7 January, Day 60
Pip Hare discovered that there is a crack in the port rudder stock of MEDALLIA. She has practiced replacing a rudder at the dock, but not in these conditions. As the autopilot made course changes the crack worsened and Pip thought that it would fail in a few hours. She stopped racing and is looking for a weather window to make the repair. Fortunately, she has a new rudder on board and the process should not take more than a hour to complete. The problem is that the rudder is buoyant and you have to force it down by attaching anchor chain to get it out.
Bestaven now has a lead of over 440 miles on second place Thomas Ruyant. He figured that this lead would shrink soon as the others got into better conditions and he was hoping that he had a big enough lead to remain in the lead.
9 January, Day 63
Alan Roura, Arnaud Boissières and Pip Hare are all nearing Cape Horn. Pip is losing distance to the two just in front of her as she slows to lessen the strain on her rudder.
Stéphane Le Diraison (TIME FOR OCEANS) is being hit by winds over 50 knots and one of the gusts knocked the boat over on her side. He said, “I think I got the worst of it with winds reaching 60 knots and waves with troughs of six to eight metres. It is mad to watch the sea which is white, almost like frothing milk and spray coming from all angles. It is so cold, you just wrap up with all you have, it is just four degrees inside the cabin and then you hear the waves breaking on deck or being knocked down by a wave and you have to get dressed in the wet clothes and go out in the middle of the night. I like that expression you just have to disconnect your brain, to concentrate on what needs to be done.”
It is different in the South Atlantic nice and warm, flat seas and 15-17 knots of wind. Bestaven is watching as his lead shrinks, now just 263 miles.
The hydraulic ram damage on Isabelle Joschke’s MACSF has forced her to retire from the Vendée Globe. It was discovered that there was additional damage to the canting keel system. Isabelle noted that the hydraulic cylinder holding her keel centered had failed. She lowered the mainsail and was sailing under headsails trying to keep the boat stable.
10 January, Day 64
Bestaven’s lead is now down to 226 miles and five racers are still making gains into this lead. Ahead of the racers is a cold front which should help Bestaven gain back some miles if he chose the right way through it. They then will get into the trade winds and that will propel them to the doldrums. Finding the best way through the doldrums will be the next hurdle.
Isabelle Joschke (MACSF), who has retired from the race due to a hydraulic issue with her canting keel, is in a low. She was extremely disappointed about having to retire, but understood what she had accomplished was an incredible feat. She does have water coming in, but has been able to keep up with it.
