That is the Vendée Globe.
It may seem like November is a long way off, but the next race, starts on November 8th, 2020 from the Département of Vendée, in France. The boats are the IMOCA 60 Open class. The class has been updated to allow for foiling, though no one really knows how that will work through the Southern Ocean‡. Most of the foiling boats are modified older IMOCA 60s, or they are designed to be competitive without foils. One or two are strictly foiling monohulls.
The current record is 74 days, 3 hours and 35 minutes. To sail around the world.
Here’s the video “teaser” for the race. Considering that it’s only 3 minutes, I think it conveys the reality of trying something like that. Something I would never do…
‡ The Southern Ocean is a band of water that runs around Antarctica, south of South America, Africa and Australia. It is, mostly, an uninterrupted band of water. With no continents in the way to act as windbreak, the winds can be fierce. The Roaring 40s start at 40 degrees south. And then there are the Furious 50s, where Gale-force winds are common year-round. (That means tropical-storm-level winds approaching hurricane strength, but not associated with a tropical depression.) Dame Ellen MacArthur, who briefly held the record for the fastest, solo circumnavigation, noted that when you are in the Southern Ocean, the closest people may be the astronauts in the International Space Station.
