The new PRB, launched in March 2010, has already won the Europa Warm Up in 2012, the Trophée Azimut, the Rolex Fastnet and the Artemis Challenge in 2011. Vincent was already familiar with wing masts and the combination with the outriggers is easier to use when sailing solo. Everything has been optimized to have a boat that is fast, easy to control and made for single-handed sailing.
