But who the hell will win this Vendée Globe?
Here we are.
After weeks of wondering about the why and how of the scenario and the specifics of this Vendée Globe 2020, we have arrived at the end boss for this question of the week, weekly meeting until the arrival at Les Sables d 'Olonne: who will win this race?
They are at least six who can claim it.
Charlie Dalin, Louis Burton, Boris Herrmann, Thomas Rettant, Yannick Bestaven and Damien Seguin.
We can shoot up to eight if we count the 16 hours of bonuses of Jean Le Cam and the not so far away position of Giancarlo Pedote, even if a victory for the Italian would be more than a surprise.
The only certainty: the first boat will arrive safely on Wednesday.
