Tanguy De Lamotte recently bought the monohull formerly known as Whirlpool, which competed in the 2000-2001 and 2004-2005 Vendee Globe. That older generation Lombard Plan underwent serious renovation work. Tanguy and his team worked extremely hard and they were advised and they received advice from Michel Desjoyeaux’s team to prepare the “Initiatives Coeur” boat for a new round-the-world adventure!
