What a finish! Not only the first and second "duel", but also the third and fourth places.

I'm watching the live feed of the VG first finish, and there is not even 8,000 people watching. I am surprised by such a low number.

Regards to all,

That makes at least three of us watching this fantastic moment .
May be all the others are in Les Sables d'Ollonne . Knowing more than 400.000 "skippers" participated in the virtual race, I guess the finish was followed by many different canals. Although the french TV station FR3 interrupted the live report a few minutes before the actual finish because of... a cycling race .

It seems Armel Le Cleac'h is going tot make it in time to enter Les Sables within the same tide, which would make this exceptional celebration day complete.

Kind regards,
