Sam Davies onboard Roxy, currently travelling at around 10 knots, is expected to
cross the finish line in the Vendée Globe solo, non-stop round the world race at
02h00 (GMT) tomorrow (Saturday) morning. Roxy will then will make her way into the
harbour at around 08h00 (GMT). Sam, sailing in her maiden Vendée Globe, is now just
over 150 miles from the finish line in Les Sables d'Olonne, where a crowd of
hundreds of thousands of her supporters are waiting to welcome her and Roxy home.
Sam has defied the odds to maintain third place in the race despite having one of
the oldest boats in the fleet, and is on course to post the second fastest time ever
for a female Vendée Globe sailor.
