Skipper's log - Alex Thomson: "My easiest doldrum crossing ever" - Vendée Globe 2012-2013: "I had my easiest doldrum crossing ever yesterday with only 2 big black clouds and a slight slow down.  I was lucky that as I was crossing the area the doldrums were moving south and I was quickly into the north easterly trade winds.  Feels great to have ticked off the doldrums and now the last hurdle should be the high pressure system before I get into the westerly’s for the final stretch to the finish."

Two Britons in the Top Five - Vendée Globe 2012-2013: "A second podium finish may be a distant dream for Mike Golding (Gamesa) now, but he has unfinished business in his battle with Jean Le Cam. Golding passed Le Cam, moving into fifth by the narrowest of margins – 0.8 miles – at the 1600hrs UTC ranking. They have been duelling for most of the 70 days of this race after doing so for much of the 2004-05 race, when Le Cam beat Golding into third place."
