Spare a thought for the sailors in the Vendee Globe. They are spending this day, hundreds of miles from anywhere, in cold, dark, scary seas getting battling and wind waves that would make mere mortals like us blanch. They face the constant threat of icebergs, dismasting, injury or worse. It's a tough day to be alone, far from your loved ones.
Thinking of you Jonny, Sam, Dee, Michel, Roland, Sebastien, Armel, Vincent, Jean-Pierre, Marc, Brain, Arnaud, Steve, Rich, Derek, Raphael and Norbert. A special thought to the guys like Mike Golding who had to abandon and are making their way to safety.
