Vendée Globe leader ahead of drama

(January 7, 2021; Day 61) – Escaping first out of a high pressure which had slowed the leading four boats, Vendée Globe leader Yannick Bestaven (Maître Coq) has gained over 200 miles on the solo skippers immediately behind him.

The 48 year old from La Rochelle has the biggest lead of the race yet at 425 nautical as Charlie Dalin (Apivia) and Thomas Ruyant (LinkedOut) returned to the podium, continuing their match race along the Argentinian coastline.
