Vendee Globe three leaders offshore Kerguelen islands

Power and elegance!
Solo sailors Armel Le Cleac'h and Alex Thomson and their IMOCA60 passed the Kerguelen Islands in 1st and 2nd position of the Vendée Globe and the French Navy was there to wave them off.
Fantastic to see their gorgeous yachts fly away and relieving to hear calm and focused skippers on the radio!

Sébastien Josse (in 3rd position) about foils : 
"I think this is the point of tack where there are the most airborne"
