Yacht Racing Life website editor Justin Chisholm is joined once again by ocean racing expert Conrad Colman to mull over the latest goings on in the Vendee Globe solo around-the-world yacht race.
Amongst the topics discussed are:
– Pip Hare’s daring and heroic mid-ocean rudder replacement
– Should Alex Thomson have packed a spare rudder?
– The needle match going on between Charlie Dalin and Thomas Ruyant for second place
– Will Yannick Bestaven’s lead dwindle away over coming days?
– Hats off to Damien Seguin and Louis Burton for their performances so far on non-foiling boats: at the time of recording they are fourth and fifth respectively
– What happens next? Who might suffer most from a restart?
