    It started happening when the covered cockpits came about, Macif and Banque pop were well forward last time around. Comes from the work VPLP/Verdier did with Comanche, they kept moving the mast back in the models and figured it works.

    Vendee Globe 2016?

    SMA has bought MACIF for Figaro skipper Paul Meilhat for an IMOCA campaign ending in the 2018 RdR, but focussing on the 2016 Vendee.

    Safran have released a drawing of their new IMOCA, which will be being built from the same plug as Banque Pop

    They now own the Juan K black and white boat, they're letting ex-Virbac Paprec and I think they've sold the Farr, so only the 1, don't quote me on that though

    Both the Farr and Ex-VP3 are out of the shed with the Hugo Boss guys. Pictures soon to follow apparently.

    Vsail said Ben would announce a full project in the last week of April, not sure where the details came from.

    I'd say Macif/Maitre Coq will be the closest you'll get in terms of actual bow volume

    Figaro young-gun Morgan Lagraviere will skipper Safran's new boat for the next Vendee, taking over from Guillemot after the Route du Rhum

    Spirit of Hungary was put on hold for a little while, waiting for the new rules to be passed. I think she's going with the OD keel/mast.

    Artemis?

    Sad day for the Americas Cup, and sailing in general.
