Team Malizia off to a Rough but Good Start in Transat Jacques Vabre
Skipper Boris Herrmann and co-skipper Will Harris eagerly start the Transat Jacques Vabre race after a 9 day delay due to huge storms rolling across the Atlantic. With 40 IMOCA yachts on the start line the race is guaranteed to be exciting. Malizia - Seaexplorer is facing off against some of her newly built competitors for the first time! The race is expected to take between 12 to 14 days. The start saw the duo set off in 20 to 25 knots of wind with a complicated sea state, the first hours will be relatively upwind which means uncomfortable conditions and not as fast. Boris Herrmann will compete in the solo return race starting on 30th November 2023, which is just over a week after the arrival in Martinique.
