Pip Hare – Vendée Globe 2020

After 95 days, 11 hours, 37 mins and 30 seconds of racing, Pip Hare is the first British skipper to finish the 2020-21 Vendée Globe, and only the eighth women ever to finish the race in its history.

Her performance (19th place) on a 21-year-old IMOCA 60 the oldest boat yet to finish this edition, has drawn admiration from all corners of the world. The British sailor chose a full set of OneSails sails, built in a single piece using the exclusive 4T FORTE composite technology.

4T FORTE are the only sails worldwide certified ISO 14040 Life Cycle Assessment and, unlike all other sails, are 100% recyclable in a standard waste separation process at the end of their life.

Congrats Pip! You really deserved it. The whole OneSails team admire you and is proud of having been part of your outstanding performance!

The CODE-X CROZ team has just finished the Loro Piana Giraglia 2024 regatta, covering the 241-mile course from Saint-Tropez, through the Giraglia rock/Northern Corsica, to Genoa in 26h 32min. They placed 29th in Line Honours, 1st in ORC2, and 9th overall in ORC on corrected time.
After a solid performance in the inshore races, which provisionally placed it first both overall and in its race B division, and with an excellent result in the long distance race on the same course of the 69th Regata dei Tre Golfi, Sugar 3 consolidates and confirms the result, taking home the title.
With a total of 179 days, 18 hours and 32 minutes of sailing have passed, covering 28625 nautical miles Spirit of Helsinki came very close to overall victory, touching it by only 17 hours in the handicap time and thus placing second on the podium. However, it took the victory in the Sayula class. It was a gripping battle, won in the end by Maiden, who is still to be congratulated!
We were invited by Holly, founder of Clean Sailors and host of the podcast. During our conversation with Dede De Luca, co-founder and CEO of OneSails, we explored the world of sailmaking, the evolution of sail technology, and how this industry strives to become greener. The topic of the life cycle of sails and the materials from which they are made is often a source of great confusion. We have tried to bring more clarity to the topic, including providing tips on how to care for sails to extend their lifespan with the right care.
OneSails is happy to announce its partnership with the Gentoo Sailing Team, captained by James Harayda. As a technical sponsor, we will support his participation in the upcoming 2024 Vendée Globe by providing him with a full set of state-of-the-art 4T FORTE™ sails, renowned for their durability, design, and recyclability. As the youngest international skipper in the class, James will be supported by sails designed to excel in challenging conditions while minimizing environmental impact, a topic increasingly at the center of attention in the IMOCA class.
