Tomorrow sees the start of the hardest sailing competition in the world.
The gruelling “Vendée Globe”.
The fleet is in the harbour ahead of the race. The 29 skippers will set sail Sunday from Les Sables d’Olonne in France. The journey will take them round the world.
The Vendée Globe so hard, it’s known as the “Everest of the Seas”
Vendee Globe is a non-stop / no assistance race across some very nasty parts of ocean.
