big time?

This seems to us to be something that can be huge…
The Monaco Globe Series will start on Sunday (3rd June). This event is the first in the new IMOCA GLOBE SERIES world championship, which is the result of a shared desire and a lot of work done over the past few months, spearheaded by the IMOCA Class and the organizers, OC Sport and the Saem Vendée.
This is in fact the first time that the IMOCA class has joined up with race organisers to manage and jointly run the new class world championship. Six iconic ocean races (solo and double-handed) feature in the 2018-2021 calendar, with the possibility of an additional event being added in the spring of 2019.
The cycle will of course come to a climax with the 2020-2021 Vendée Globe, at the end of which the IMOCA GLOBE SERIES world championship title will be awarded. Title inspiration thanks to Peter Gabriel.
