Jérémie Beyou has an innovative boat that was made to measure. The skipper of Charal runs through some of the parameters that reveal a break from the previous generation of IMOCA boats: extremely large foils, a modified hull and weight reductions.
For Jérémie, being the first to launch a new boat is an advantage. This was a deliberate choice, which will allow him to work to improve his boat. Jérémie wants to make sure time is on his side before the Vendée Globe.
The first major race for Charal will be the Route du Rhum. The race will be a first test and an opportunity to see how she measures up against some tough competition.
But above all, Jérémie tells us about his love of the Vendée Globe and his passion for solo racing. “Already when Armel was crossing the line as the winner of the last edition, I knew I’d be there at the start again.”
