Sail-World will bring you all the stories and images as the yachts set sail on December 26th!
The situation hasn't changed much in the Vendée Globe as Gabart and Le Cléac'h, the two leaders, are pretty much copying each other's every move. Earlier this week, Bernard Stamm on Cheminées Poujoulat opted to stop at the Auckland Islands to perform some much needed repairs on his hydro generators; a problem that has plagued him since sailing along the Portuguese coast many weeks ago. As a result, he has let Alex Thompson take over fourth place in the race.
