Following the latest readings by specialised companies, the ice is positionned quite high on the Vendée Globe route. The Kerguelen gate (50°00 S / 040°00 E - 050°00 E) is therefore replaced by the Crozet gate (39°00 S / 042° 00 E - 050° 00 E). As a consequence, the complete race route will be 300 nautical miles longer. CLS (Collecte localisation satellites) will share more information on that topic in their press conference on Friday afternoon.

On an ongoing basis
