Clarisse Crémer crossed the finish line of the Vendée Globe in 12th position on Wednesday, February 3rd at 4:44 pm, after 87 days, 2 hours, 24 minutes, and 25 seconds of single-handed racing.
Mission accomplished! After 87 days, 2 hours, 24 minutes, and 25 seconds of racing, Clarisse crossed the Vendée Globe finish line in 12th position overall.
The first woman in the ranking to complete the 2020-2021 Vendée Globe, she has also become the fastest woman to sail around the world in a monohull*, beating the record set by Ellen MacArthur 20 years ago! This marks the end of a superb adventure on the “Everest of the Seas,” and mission accomplished for Clarisse and Team Banque Populaire!
Well done Clarisse!
