Everyone is focused on the variation of the differences between François Gabart and Armel Le Cléac'h. The two leaders eventually get used to the distances sometimes less than ten miles between the two competitors. At the same time, one hundred miles may seem a world. But nearly twenty knots, such as the arrival of les Sables d'Olonne can provide the conditions, it is less than six hours apart.


This is probably, in retrospect, what we remember from this Vendée Globe 2012-2013. Differences have never been so low, but we never saw differences as quickly create and fill in the same way.

Tail fleet, Bertrand de Broc, with a party of twenty hours later, about 250 miles, has seen over the doors were closing in on him, the gaps widen, reaching over three million on leaders. Skipper Your Name Around the World with EDM Projects ate black bread to his Horn. But the rise of the South Atlantic, as it has Tanguy de Lamotte ( Initiatives-heart ) of weather that could bring it to within 200 miles of Arnaud Boissières ( Akena Verandas ) in the coming days. And what about Jean Le Cam ( SynerCiel ) and Mike Golding ( Gamesa ) who now find themselves in a situation similar to the one they had known during their descent of the South Atlantic after experiencing gaps close to 500 miles between them.

Given this ability to create marine gaps and fill them, given the speed boats, we can understand that the two candidates are in the final victory of prudence Sioux on the final outcome.
