Team Plastique - This is not the first Vendée Globe attempt for the Team Plastique 60’ monohull. Coville (6th in 2000-2001), Josse (5th in 2004-2005) and Boissières (7th in 2008-2009) have successfully sailed her around the world in the “Everest of the seas”. Alessandro will therefore be on the start line with a recently refurbished reliable boat. #VendeeGlobe #VG2012
