In 2008, during my second VendéeGlobe, I had a dream : design and build the ideal sailboat. Alone amidst the ocean, I felt like sharing the extraordinary sensations that one can feel on a racing sailboat such as an IMOCA.
This dream has now name : « TheKid ». She is of course smaller than an IMOCA (54 ft vs 60 ft), but designed in the same spirit : carbon infusion, swing keel, stacking carousel. With no compromise on performances, TheKid is a racing sailboat much more comfortable than her « big brothers » : true cabins, kitchen, welcoming saloon, heads, shower. A sailboat designed for sailors who want to experiment the feeling of fast offshore sailing in race conditions without giving up too much on comfort.
