Vendée Arctique - Ranking in the Top 10
Audacity and commitment pay. Rough weather conditions had the Vendée Arctique stop way before the initial finish line, but the race has been incredible nonetheless.
Due to harsh weather, impeding the race to go according to plans, Iceland has finally been chosen as the finish line. The Fives sponsored skipper, Louis Duc, managed to rank at an outstanding 8th place. One of the truest victories, as it was his 2nd ever IMOCA race and 1st one in solo.
While the race is now over, Louis Duc has had opportunities to look at performances of other centerboard boats and was only 7 minutes away from one of the best current foilers out there. This is definitely good news for the next races!
The Vendée Arctique is one of the qualifying races for the Vendée Globe 2024. Louis Duc will, for the next years to come, adventure himself into new territories, filled with passion, determination and cleverness. Fives not only sponsors the skipper Louis Duc, but also accompanies him throughout the adventure with high-performing, resistant parts to favor the odds of winning as best as possible.
