Highfield Inflatables Vendee Globe
SAEM Vendee, owner and organizer of Vendee Globe the non-stop solo round-the-world sailing race signed an official partnership with HIGHFIELD, world leader of aluminum hulled tenders and RIBs, to ensure the safe departure and arrival of the 8th edition.
The 42 Highfield RIBs have been delivered as planned on the 14th of October in Les Sables d’Olonne.
More than 350,000 spectators lined the legendary exit channel and the beaches to bid farewell to the skippers on Sunday the 6th of November for the start of the eighth edition of the Vendee Globe.
The huge legions of impassioned spectators, ashore and afloat as well as the 29 intrepid solo skippers who set off from Les Sables d’Olonne start line at 13:02 were treated to perfect weather conditions for the start of the legendary solo non-stop round the world race.
All went perfectly well for our fleet of 42 Highfields that ensured the safe kick-off of the event!
Marlon will have their Patrol 760 at the BC office in March – April 2017!
