As the start date of 8th November nears, the skippers share their fears, their personal goals and just how long they have chased success in the Vendée Globe Race.
“I’ve been consumed by this race for 20 years.” – Alex Thomson, HUGO BOSS
Shirley also delves into the design game with Juan Kouyoumdjian. The IMOCA boats are incredibly fast. The boats and the skippers will be pushed to do speeds previously thought impossible on a sailing boat. Just how far can these boats – and their skippers – be pushed?
