I.M.O.C.A 20-20 / Vendee Globe Race / M.Y.M.O.C.A.

- 1995 Project for the 1996-97 Vendee Globe Race. Designed with a single chine, with straight daggerboards and rotating keel, mast and wishbones.


- With just a year to go before the start of the Vendee Globe, and with the Transat Jacques Vabre under way, lets make the point as of now and for the future IMOCAs over the next 12 months. I have no access to files about the newly launched boats and therefore I will start with my own evolution with designs for this very special Class.
- Eventually, with the progress and comments going to be made, I might change my ideas to present a coherent and up to date approach to my own visions.
