The biggest solo transat is on

Is homeboy following or want to follow the "Route du Rhum"?

Have a look at the start:

and at the boats(videos):
Interesting Sailboats: ROUTE DU RHUM THE WORLD'S BIGGEST SAIL RACE?

A solo race with monohulls and Multihulls. Multihulls are faster but have disadvantages with bad weather and when sailing upwind. They had a big advantage on the first hours but now they are sailing upwind and some monos overtake some multis. Bad weather on the way. Not so fun for them but very interesting for us LOL
