24 hours before the finish of the Vendée Globe, no one can predict who will win the race, in particular because of the compensation enjoyed by those who have diverted themselves to save a competitor. Invited by France 24, the French skipper Kevin Escoffier, who had to abandon the Vendée Globe because of a major waterway in his boat, comments on an “exciting” end of the race.
While the first Vendée Globe skippers should arrive on Wednesday January 27 in Les Sables d’Olonne, it is impossible to know who will be the winner among the group of five boats leading the race to Les Sables-d’Olonne, in a A sprint of unprecedented suspense, accentuated by the time compensation granted to the skippers who had turned aside for the rescue of Kevin Escoffier at the end of November.
Asked about the France 24 antenna, from Les Sables-d’Olonne where he awaits the arrival of his peers, the latter described, on the France 24 antenna, the end of the race as “sportingly exciting”.
