Yacht Racing Life website editor Justin Chisholm and his expert co-host, Vendee Globe skipper Conrad Colman, pore of the possibilities for the final 2,000 miles of the Vendee Globe solo around-the-world race and try to guesstimate which of the three front-runners – Charlie Dalin on Apivia, Louis Burton on Bureau Vallee, or Boris Herrmann on Seaexplorer Yacht Club de Monaco – will make it to the finish in Les Sables D’Olonne ahead.
Among the topics discussed:
–  How the last week played out to set up such a tightly fought race so close to the finish
– A tip of the hat for a bold strategy from Louis Burton to split from his rivals – and has it paid off?
– A recap of how the race has played out for each of the top three skippers
– Why a massive storm system coming across the Atlantic will likely play a huge role in deciding the winner
– Which of the three skippers might cope best with the pressure of such a close race?
– Put your money where your mouth is time – who do Justin and Conrad think are going to win, and why?
