Didac Costa’s Imoca 60 has returned to the Real Club Náutico de Barcelona, the base from where it will finish preparing its next Vendée Globe, a round the world tour without stops or assistance.
Costa will be the only Spanish sailor to participate in this prestigious regatta, as it was also in the last edition, in 2016. Costa has emphasized that he sees the Vendée Globe 2020 not only as a sporting challenge but as an opportunity to join forces to advance important causes such as sustainable development and social inclusion.
That is why its Imoca will be the flagship of UNESCO’s One Planet One Ocean (IOC-UNESCO) campaign and will be used as a scientific platform for oceanographic monitoring studies on topics such as ocean salinity and plankton diversity.
The One Planet One Ocean project is also carrying out various educational activities with the aim of bringing ocean sailing closer to groups with social difficulties, vocational students and people with different abilities.
Costa thanked the RCNB for its support, which, since the beginning of the project, has put its facilities and motorboats at the service of the navigator in their preparation for going around the world. He also explained that the team is still looking for sponsors who want to join forces during this final stretch to finalize the budget and be able to achieve the objectives set for this Vendée Globe, which begins on November 8.
