IMOCA Open 60 – Vendée Globe – Les Sables dOlonne FRA – the safety hazard

Keeping the Vendée as safe as possible, the Race Direction team of four, led by Race Director Jacques Caraes, formerly a round the world ocean racer himself, keep the fleet under constant surveillance all the way before and during the race. The required safety equipment of all 33 IMOCAs was checked by the scrutineers. After earlier passing their medical examination and their first aid and medical training, the skippers and their IMOCAs are fully checked off and deemed ready to race. —– A report on the event website.
