IMOCA Class Yacht Brit Air

The IMOCA Class’ World Champion was announced this week.  This time  the annual title goes to 32 year old Armel le Cleac’h.  He shares the IMOCA Championship podium with Marc Guillemot and Michel Desjoyeaux, exactly the same podium as the Vendée Globe, but the reverse way round.  Armel, skipper of Brit Air, has won his place by finishing second in both the Artemis Transat and the Vendée Globe. The Vendée Globe obviously carries the maximum points in the championship, and all 12 sailors that completed it will be rewarded accordingly.  This year the top ten rankings is made up of 5 French skippers, 4 Brits and 1 American.  Amongst them is Sam Davies in 4th place!
