Winner of the the Vendee Globe 2008-2009 and the 2009 Europa Race in the hands of Michel Desjoyeaux, this Bruce Farr plan is high-performing, sound, versatile and perfectly reliable.

In May 2012, the boat changes name and colour and becomes Jeremie Beyou's Maitre CoQ. German skipper Jörg Riechers is the new helmsman of the boat, now racing under the colours of MARE. In 2014, he won the Barcelona World Race under the colours of Cheminées Poujoulat, skippered by Bernard Stamm and Jean Le Cam. At the end of this victorious round the world race in 2015, Jean Le Cam took possession of it and prepared it for the 2016 Vendée Globe. The boat has been completely overhauled from the keel foot to the mast head, and optimized down to the last detail.
