The sun is out this morning for this day, which will mark the conclusion of the 8th Vendée Globe. After crossing the finish line last night, Sébastien Destremau managed to get some sleep aboard his boat and was able to eat a few pizzas, which he particularly enjoyed after weeks of rationing his food. Because of the tide, it will be at 1200hrs UTC that the skipper of TechnoFirst-faceOcean will be able to enter the harbour. Given that this is the final boat to complete the round the world race, crowds are expected this afternoon to welcome Destremau. You can follow this arrival on the Vendée Globe facebook page: entrance into the harbour, his first words on the pontoon, the podium and the press conference.
