Four Days to the start of Mike Golding’s 4th Vendée Globe

It’s four days to go before the start of the 2012-2013 Vendée Globe and Britain’s Mike Golding OBE is ready for the start of his fourth entry in the brutal race which is acknowledged as the pinnacle of solo ocean racing. The boat is packed, the final jobs list is completed and the 150kg of food for the 25,000 mile race around the planet is on-board.

There is little more that Golding can do now except wait for Saturday morning 0946hrs (local time) when his IMOCA 60, Gamesa, will leave the dock in Les Sables d’Olonne, in the Vendée region of France, and head to the start line of what many say is the toughest race known to man.
