Arnaud Boissières aiming for his third Vendée Globe

He completed the last two editions of the Vendée Globe (7th in 2008-2009, 8th in 2012-2013) and cannot imagine not being there again for the next. Arnaud Boissières, now aged 41, is therefore busy looking for sponsors, with all the enthusiasm and determination that we usually associate with a youngster, who is new to the event.

Expertises are ongoing

After being refloated end of January in Aber Wrac'h then repatriated in mid-February to Brest, his home base, Cheminées Poujoulat's wreck began to be appraised. For now, one thing is certain: it is indeed a problem of corrosion. Remains to understand how and why.
