VIDEO But what drone! So I film the boat from above. What a genius Amedeo

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!

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.
