Vendee Globe Update^3

Golly, it does all seem to happening in the Vendee Globe fleet!

Drama after drama but, thank God, Vincent Riou was able to rescue Jean Le Cam after the keel bulb fell off his boat (above).

But Sam is still in the race and moving up to 5th :)

Oh, that sort of picture just always hit you straight in the gut, don't they?

(unless it's a kayak in which case 9 times out of 10 it's a picture of somebody horsing around)

Glad he's OK.

Go Sam Go!

The report said something about him waving a flag out of one of the through-hulls. Amazing.

It continues to be a gripping race. I can't think of any other race where there would be such a high drop-out ratio.

Ok, apart from the last Fastnet but mean at a professional level.

Just glad that everyone so far has been rescued.
