Vendée Globe 2020

Published on 17 November 2020

Yannick Bestaven won the 2020 Vendée Globe, a unique edition full of twists and turns.

Third to cross the finish line behind Charlie Dalin (Apivia) and Louis Burton (Bureau Vallée 2), the skipper of Maître Coq IV benefited of 10 hours-compensation for his participation in the rescue of Kevin Escoffier after his sinking. A hard-won victory in 80 days 13 hours and 59 minutes!
