Gabart, Le Cleac'h in sight of each other in Vendee Globe

- +

After sailing halfway around the world, Armel Le Cleac'h and Francois Gabart still have each other in their sights as they set out on the second half of the Vendee Globe race. 

French skipper Armel Le Cleac'h on board his monohull "Banque Populaire" gestures before the start of the 7th edition of the Vendee Globe, the solo non-stop round-the-world yacht race, in Les Sables d'Olonne, western France, on November 10, 2012. Armel Le Cleac'h and Francois Gabart still have each other in their sights as they set out on the second half of the Vendee Globe race.
