IMOCA Open 60 – Vendée Globe – Les Sables dOlonne FRA – a new record expected

The record for the solo-non-stop circumnavigation of the globe, established in the 2016/17 Vendée by Armel Le Cléach FRA with 74 days will most likely been improved in the forthcoming challenge, thanks to the foils and high-tech auto-pilots. Alex Thompson GBR predicts an improvement of up to 15 days, depending and the meteo conditions. —- The report.
