Vendée Globe - NEW YEAR, NEW RESOLUTION
Freshly shaven wearing an immaculate clean shirt 55 days after starting the Vendée Globe in Les Sables d’Olonne, leader Armel Le Cléac’h shows little emotion as he records a broadcast for a New Year special for French TV. Clearly there is a job still to do, winning the Vendée Globe for the first time, and his unwavering focus, his tunnel vision if you like, is once again evident.
Le Cléac’h is giving nothing away as ever. Indeed, it would not be breaking ranks to reveal the interviewer left the stage shaking his head, bemused that, once again, there was not even the slightest sniff of a ‘scoop’. It was seemingly perfectly scripted for the sailor, who is hard-wired to try and win this race at the third time of asking.
