Now that the Vendee Globe solo round-the-world race has begun, I’m finally getting into it.  And a brutal start it has been, with four of 30 starters already retired and two seemingly also down, while the leaders are reeling off 300+ nm days.   And only 4.5 days in!

I’m glad to see that the two ladies in the race, Dee Caffari and Samantha Davies are doing so well.   There is almost a race-within-a-race going on with exchanges of their rankings since the start.   Read their sites, pick your favorite, subscribe to the RSS feeds, and have a great couple of months!
