Many congratulations to Sam Davies for sailing a brilliant Vendee Globe and to be third to cross the finish line this morning at Les Sables d'Olonne.
She has done it in style, sailing safe and fast while enjoying the good times and reporting on the bad. Her blog has been a big hit - indeed it is currently out of action due to "Too many client tasks".
Despite being back safely on dry land, the tension will not be fully released for another 50 hours or so as she discovers whether Safran can arrive in time to grab the final podium position. Current projections are it will go down to the wire.
And she even achieved her final goal - to be back by Valentines Day :)
