Are you sure about that? They were both new boats for the last Vendee. I thought they were launched almost exactly the same time, with the old Charal a bit before that. They both have new boats on the way. Which brings us back to talented ladies getting good boats. Clarisse is getting Apivia! Yay!Linked out is a generation newer than Apivia. It could just be that much lighter. But, probably foil and sail options as well. Charlie has a new boat in build. It will be interesting what changes are made.
