On the eve of the arrival, the two contenders for victory in the Vendée Globe, the French Armel Le Cléac’h (Banque Populaire) and the Welshman Alex Thomson (Hugo Boss) are still neck-and-neck. The advantage remains for the finistérien skipper, although his lead has melted to just 40 miles on Wednesday at 9 am.

The gap, which was roughly stable since Monday, is reduced again since Monday, Thomson gaining a few miles to reduce the gap. The two leaders are now approaching the coast of Brittany. They expect a wind shift to tack and begin the final stretch to the finish in Les Sables d’Olonne. On the direct route, very theoretical because it does not account for weather conditions, they are only 383 miles from the finish in Les Sables d’Olonne.
