The Swiss sailor Alan Roura has completed all the formalities required to register to start the upcoming Vendée Globe. All things remaining equal the solo skipper of La Fabrique is sure to be at the start of the 2020-21 race. He qualifies automatically from having finished the 2016 Vendée Globe and had to qualify his new boat on a transatlantic race and then complete all the administrative and medical formalities. That is now all done. And, once again as he was in 2016, Roura will once again be the youngest skipper in the race but now having accrued a heap more experience.
