Davies and Guillemot fight for VG third

Samantha Davies currently trails third-place Marc Guillemot in the Vendee Globe by 107 miles.  Roxy is making 15.3 knots compared to Guillemot’s 16.3, despite the latter having 10 knots more wind.

From Sail-World.com:

If Guillemot finishes third the podium will effectively comprise two Farr sister-ships, the Finot Conq designed Brit Air and the VPLP-Verdier designed Safran. Prize money is Euros 150,000 for first, 90,000 for second and 60,000 each for the two third places.
