Vendée Globe.  Burton takes second place, behind Dalin’s basques – Vendée Globe


Leading his Imoca, an 18-meter sailboat, at a breakneck pace, Louis Burton (Groupe Vallée) passed the German Boris Herrmann (Seaexporer-Yacht Club de Monaco) and was sailing on Friday morning 29 miles from Charlie Dalin (Apivia ).

Author of the best progression on Thursday, he widened the gap with a group of four sailors: Boris Herrmann, Thomas Rettant (LinkedOut), Damien Seguin (Groupe Apicil) and Yannick Bestaven (Maître Coq V). The five men are nonetheless in a pocket handkerchief less than 2,000 miles (3,700 km) from the finish in Les Sables d’Olonne, after more than two and a half months of racing, and anything is still possible.
