The skipper of Time for Oceans is getting ready to be at the start of the Vendée Globe in November 2020. For his second attempt, he will be sailing the same boat as in 2016, but she has been heavily modified, losing around almost 700 kilos. Stéphane has taken advantage of his experience in 2016 to make her easier to handle and intends to fit the monohull with foils at the end of 2019.
Between now and 2020, the major events will be the Route du Rhum, then the Transat Jacques Vabre and the other races in the IMOCA Globe Series. In 2019, Stéphane will be focusing on his physical and mental preparation and carrying out a detailed study of strategy. In 2016, Stéphane only had a year to prepare. The 2020 project marks the continuation of his project, but this time he will have much more time to prepare.
The Time for Oceans project is an opportunity for him to bring together his commitment to sustainable development and his passion for the oceans. His challenge is to try to convince as many people as he can that this commitment concerns us all.
