The Vendée Awaits..!

Screenshot 2020-02-11 at 17.43.44Miranda is the 6th competitor to officially enter the 2020 Vendée Globe, in which she will be racing the Imoca 60 Campagne de France. Her entry was validated by the race organisation on the 30th of January.

Halvard commented, “The Vendée Globe itself is a non-stop race, but there are many stages along the way just to get to the starting line: launching the campaign, acquiring a boat, application to have the right to enter the race, validation of 2000 miles solo, competing in and completing the Transat Jacques Vabre… and each stage needs to be completed before tackling the next one. The Vendée Globe is a very long race, and for some, the start gun on the 8th of November will mark the finish line of all the stages which precede THE GREAT ADVENTURE”.

The boat is in winter refit at V1D2 in Caen. The next two races in the IMOCA programme are The Transat CIC in May and NY – Vendée in June.
