The Ocean Racing Club – The next step on the road to the Vendee Globe in 2020.

Since launching Vendee 2020 Vision in 2016, the project has gone from strength to strength. Aiming to produce the first British winner of the Vendee Globe race in 2020, 10 young sailors signed up to compete for the Vendee Globe skippers slot. A year later, 4 remain. The next step? 2 will be selected to compete at the elite level in short-handed Ocean Racing, sailing trans-atlantic from France to Brazil, in the legendary Transat Jacque Vabre race.
