Find out the furler inventory taking part in the Transat Jacques Vabre 2019

Transat Jacques Vabre 2019

We were in Le Havre for the start of the Transat Jacques Vabre 2019, where we had the chance to view the boats. We took this opportunity to make the inventory of furler supplied on the boats participating in this transatlantic race.

We are interested in monitoring the changes over the years in terms of design and how manufacturers are involved in the world of Ocean Racing. For example, in the Vendée Globe 2008, many of the boats were using toggles for the J2 (which is structural on the Imoca). Nowadays, all the recent boats feature lashing attachements which provide more flexibility and better resistance to stress and fatigue, and as a results less chance of dismasting because of a failure of the fitting.
