Tanguy de Lamotte (Initiatives Cœur) will be shaving his beard tomorrow for a ‘mo’ustache for Movember to raise awareness for prostrate cancer. Watch this space for photos.

Alex Thomson (Hugo Boss) is running a competition on Facebook to see which ridiculous beard his Facebook fans want him to sport. Right now, hurtling along at 17 knots into the icy south it’s probably the last thing he wants to do and alluded to that on Vendée Globe LIVE today but being the consummate professional no doubt he’ll rise to the challenge despite the arduous conditions he is experiencing.

Make sure that you have yourself plugged into the race. Have you download the app yet? It’s the easiest way to follow the course so you can be on the move but still hooked into the adventure. Download it now if you haven’t.
