Vendée Globe president satisfied with new IMOCA gauge    
Tue, 23 Apr 2013

Bruno Retailleau, President of the Vendée Globe, said he was pleased with the new gauge prototype adopted on Friday by the IMOCA class.

'It is a good decision, which goes in the direction desired by the Board of Directors of the Vendée Globe.'

According to Bruno Retailleau, this new rule is open enough to keep the Vendée Globe spirit and its technological adventure. But at the same time, it sets limits to the use of new materials, which will reduce the boats costs and imposes strict rules on the most sensitive elements, such as keels and mats, to ensure more reliable boats.

This is a decision that preserves both the identity of the Vendée Globe and its ability to evolve.
