The weather isn’t just causing issues here in the UK…

The Vendee Globe is now on its 17th day and the weather isn’t doing the race participants any favours. Hampshire Sailor Mike Golding has said

‘The wind is up and down and it is pouring with rain. All night it has been like this. I ‘s just dropped to five knots. It is so up and down, it is hard to rest’

You can follow all the action of the Vendee Globe on the official website www.vendeeglobe.org

Let’s hope the conditions become more favourable for the sailors taking part, and the sun shows its face for us here by weekend!
