Jeremie Beyou and The Chilean Army
He may not win the Vendee Globe Around The World Race this time but Jeremie Beyous story aboard his boat Charal is one of the many amazing individual stories to emerge from this edition of the Vendee Globe.
At the start of the race, Jeremie suffered damage to his boat and returned to the port of Les Sable d’Olonne in France to make repairs before recommencing his race.
Nine days after the official start Jeremie set off again some 5000 nm behind the race leaders. Now into Day 69 of the race Jeremie has come thru the field from position thirty seconds to position no fourteen and is now 2100 nm behind the leaders.
In this video taken by the Chilean Army, we see just what it’s like on a small boat in a big ocean.
