Solitaire du Figaro: a promising future for Simon and Dalin

For Sébastien Simon, as for Charlie Dalin, the 2018 Solitaire Urgo Le Figaro was their final race in the circuit before they spend all their time on their Vendée Globe projects. For each of them, this final event was very promising for what lies ahead.

Sébastien Simon has become one of the few who have won the Solitaire du Figaro. Winner of two legs, he showed that this year, he was a notch above his rivals and in so doing he made it clear that he is going to be one to watch in the next Vendée Globe. The outcome was particularly positive too for Charlie Dalin, who once again made it onto the race podium. 
They will now be able to follow the construction of their monohulls, before meeting up again on the water in 2019, when their boats are due to be launched.
