Yacht Coatings supporting two teams in elite sailing event
Two of the boats competing in the latest edition of The Ocean Race have been coated with high-performance products supplied by our Yacht Coatings business.
The WindWhisper Racing Team’s VO65 and Paul Meilhat’s IMOCA (Biotherm) boat both feature products from our Awlgrip range and will display our Awlgrip logo. They will also receive expert support during the demanding five-month event.
Following an in-port race in Alicante, Spain, on January 8, the race itself will officially begin on January 15. The foiling IMOCA fleet will sail the full 32,000 nautical mile (60,000 km) route, while the VO65s will take on a shorter challenge, competing for the inaugural The Ocean Race VO65 Sprint Cup – which features three stages of racing that match legs one, six and seven of the around the world race.
