Vendée Globe

Arrival of Armel Le Cléach

19 janvier 2017
I had the chance to follow Armel Le Cléach arrival in Les Sables d'Olonne while he was crossing the line, winning the 8th Vendée Globe.
We left the harbor at 2.20p.m and we began to see the IMOCA Banque Populaire VIII after one hour of navigation.
The boat was sailing upwind, so it was leaning a lot.
He crossed the line after 74 days three hours and 35 minutes in solo around the world.
