The boat will be launched in summer 2015, with the objective to be race ready to compete in the Transat Jacques Vabre in late October 2015.

In the meantime, Alex Thomson is preparing to take on the Barcelona World Race, the double-handed, non-stop, round the world race, on 31 December together with co-skipper Pepe Ribes.
