The last part of Golden Globe 2018 comprised of the sailors sailing by the Les Sables d’Olonne of France; Van Den Heede remained with an enviable lead and Mark Slats was a close second. It is to be remembered that Van Den Heede nursed a damaged rig at that time and Mark Slats was hoping to close the gap that remained between his vessel and that of Van Den Heede.
Susie Goodall was later rescued and brought back to Punta Arenas. Here she was taken for a checkup to a hospital. Other developments comprised of Van den Heede being awarded a penalty of 18 hours since he made a satellite phone call to his wife. This is a small penalty considering the nautical miles that remain and turns into a contest that is honest between Slats and Van den Heede. Further developments would be seen as the race continues. Meanwhile, the Indian sailor participating in the race, Abhilash Tomy also had to pull off since his vessel got into troubled waters.
