Not a new IMOCA but does anyone know where the current Hugo Boss (ex VIRBAC-PAPREC 3) is headed given that the new HB will launch soon?  Seems to be one of the few last generation IMOCA's available.

she's owned by FNOB, the organisers of the BWR, and they have sold her

 


Is it the one that Kito de Pavant just bought?

I saw a snippet that he just bought the former Hugo Boss.... but there are so many former Hugo Boss...

 

yeah, Kito has bought VP3!

Is the traveler forward as a function of the shorter cockpit or have they been doing this on the new boats for a while now? Seem to remember them on the transom.

 

It started happening when the covered cockpits came about, Macif and Banque pop were well forward last time around.

 

Mast further back then before, is that a trend I missed ?

 

Comes from the work VPLP/Verdier did with Comanche, they kept moving the mast back in the models and figured it works.
