Profile

Committed skipper, Conrad Colman was in 2017 the first to complete a Vendée Globe without fossil fuels.

By buying Maxime Sorel's former IMOCA boat, the same one that made him want to start ocean racing, the Lorient-based New Zealander is aiming for a participation in the Route du Rhum. Looking for committed partners to finalize his budget, Conrad will line up in the first two races of the season and start to gather miles for the Vendée Globe 2024, his ultimate goal.
