2020 Vendee Globe – Start

The 9th edition of the Vendee Globe is about to start!

Racing began on the Virtual Regatta platform at 4:00am PST, while heavy fog delayed the actual race start by over an hour.

Wind conditions look to provide a fast port reach, probably foiling conditions, out of the Bay of Biscay and into difficult, head to wind weather before reaching any southern trade winds.

Interestingly, this edition does not include any previous race winners so the title is guaranteed to be obtained by one of the 33 sailors who’ve always dreamed of winning this race.

Good luck to all sailors!

Fairs winds and following seas!
