Charlie Dalin, Vendee Globe race leader on the water, will get to know if he is still the overall leader on Wednesday 16 December.
This is when the five strong International Jury will publish their decision regarding time compensation for Jean Le Cam, Yannick Bestaven, and Boris Herrmann, who were all involved in the rescue mission for Kevin Escoffier.
Yannick Bestaven on Maître CoQ IV, currently in third place, 73 nm behind leader Dalin, could well end up as leader on the database, as he back-tracked to reach Escoffier when the organization asked him to help with the search.
Meanwhile Dalin is doing his best to contain second placed Thomas Ruyant on LinkedOut – who could also overtake him after the Jury decisions are published – as well as Bestaven.
