The Vendée Globe front-runners can expect to celebrate the New Year by waving to Cape Horn on their port side as they negotiate the always challenging Drake's passage separating Antarctica from South America. Although they can expect relatively clement weather for the passage, the skippers will need to remain vigilant, as many small icebergs have been sighted around the area for most of December. Jean-Pierre Dick and Alex Thomson, running third and fourth, also have the Southern Atlantic Ocean and the big left-hand turn in their sight while the remainder of the fleet is busy picking the best route through the Pacific ice gates.
