Do you want people to see aerial images of your boat, but you don’t have a drone or even a helicopter? The solution is there, and it is shown to us by Fabrice Amedeo, skipper of Newrest-Matmut racing in the Vendée Globe (the nonstop solo round-the-world race aboard IMOCA 60): just… attach an action-cam to a kite! Difficult, but not impossible. Here are the incredible in images the French skipper shot in a moment of (relative) calm after so many days of storms in the southern oceans.

Meanwhile in the Atlantic, with 3,220 miles to go in Les Sables d’Olonne, Vendée, France, the match-race continues between Armel Le Cleac’h, current leader aboard Banque Populaire VIII off Brazil, and Alex Thomson, on Hugo Boss, who trails him by 130 miles. A wide open situation, over these distances 130 miles is nothing, all it takes is a high pressure to turn the tables. In third position, 880 miles behind Le Cleac’h, is Jérémie Beyou on Maitre Coq.
