After reaching La Coruna on Tuesday and repairing Bureau Vallée on Wednesday, Louis Burton is back at sea, sailing to Les Sables d'Olonne with Davy Beaudart on the night between Wednesday and Thursday. The youngest skipper in the Vendée Globe fleet had had to retire from the race after being hit by a fishing boat and he is expected in Les Sables d'Olonne around 2.30PM (French time). Louis Burton will then sail to Saint-Malo, spend quality time with his family and celebrate his son's first birthday.
