This project will be carried out on board “Mecton”, a second-hand 40-foot sloop bought in February 2016
The boat has already been tested during several multi-day cruises, particularly in difficult conditions (Beaufort 8) and during night navigation.
Some work will be carried out before the crossing of the Atlantic.
It will be our itinerant base camp, which can accommodate 7 team members divided into 3 cabins and a quarter berth
The boat is ready for offshore sailing, and has been specially designed to support our energy needs and for the particularities of a total autonomous trip ( in terms of food and water)
