The solo sailing blog: The calm before the storm

Alex Thomson

Today I am getting ready to embark on one of the most gruelling sporting challenges in the world – the solo round-the-world race, the Vendée Globe. During the race I will be blogging for The Independent about my journey. At the moment I am in Les Sables d’Olonne with my boat and 19 other competitors waiting for the start of the race tomorrow, November 10th at 13.02 (CET).
