Vendee Globe live tracking

Warriors Three Back from the Sea - Vendée Globe 2012-2013: " . . . Wednesday saw Le Cam finish his Press Conference dancing on the table, another Vendée Globe first. Golding today was patient, informative, no less passionate for keeping his feet on the ground and really revealed the reasons he has been back to the race so many times and finished three times. . . . For Le Cam – who has a second place under his belt - the dream of winning is probably to be reconsidered another day. For Golding it is conclusively over. Given the opportunity Stamm would likely take the start line tomorrow if he were guaranteed an official ranking. Meantime the third member of the 50-somethings, Dominique Wavre on Mirabaud is set to finish his third Vendée Globe this Friday around 1300hrs to 1500hrs. The Swiss skipper has sailed a typically assured race, pleasingly devoid of drama and one which he has clearly enjoyed almost all of. He has proven himself to be at one with his boat in all its different environments and has visibly enjoyed sharing the challenge. . . . "

Alessandro Di Benedetto in the Doldrums - Vendée Globe 2012-2013: "I have between 8 and 9 knots of wind, at this time it is not violent ... but I'm fine. I'm sailing between 7 and 9 knots upwind.   The windless night with no sleep was long. I spent my night pulling up the Code Zero and the Solent, pulling down the rudders, etc. . . . "
