On December 3rd, Michel Desjoyeaux wasback in the top 10 of the Vendée Globe, 3 weeks after his second start from Les Sables d’Olonne. At the end of the month, he is the leader. Mich’Desj is the SeaSailSurfer of December.

Does Michel Desjoyeaux surprises us ? He left Les Sables d’Olonne on November 11 after a short pit-stop but 2 days behind the front runners of the Vendée Globe. On December the 3rd, he was back in the top ten (cf photo). On December 16th, Foncia’ skipper took the lead when Mike Golding was leaving the race, Ecover’s mast down. At the end of the year, The Professor is still leading. What Else ?
