Vendee Globe - Golding aims to reduce deficit on Le Cam

'Onboard Gamesa - 2012 Vendee Globe'    Mike Golding Yacht Racing ©
In the Vendee Globe, with his primary objective being to reduce his deficit on Jean Le Cam (SynerCiel) who is 136 miles ahead of him this morning, Mike Golding has gained about 13 miles on his rival in the last 24 hours, but is consistently around one knot quicker.

They are reaching at around 12-14kts on the edge of a big, messy area of high pressure to their west. Longer term it looks as if Le Cam will go into lighter airs first, but this period of the race in the South Atlantic is going to be subject to some ongoing compression and expansion.

Meantime, since Cape Horn, Golding has extended nicely on Dominique Wavre (Mirabaud) and the boats behind him, all still south of the Falklands Islands this morning, making less than 10kts and now 260 miles behind.

Mike is expected to be featured on the Vendée Globe LIVE programme from 12:00 GMT today on the Vendee Globe website.
