Vendée Globe competitor and Yachting World contributor Pip Hare, together with Paul Larsen, the fastest man on water, take a look at all 33 boats which will be starting this year’s solo round-the-world race on November 8.
In part two they check out the IMOCA that Greta Thunberg crossed the Atlantic on, the IMOCA that was originally designed to be a fully crewed ‘Super 60’, Paul Larsen reveals why IMOCAs don’t always need to cant their keels anymore, discusses the pros and cons of ‘fences’ on foils, and reveals which of the new boats is reputed to be the easiest to sail. Plus they ask the big question – can Jérémie Beyou’s Charal be beaten?
