Your view into the world of Imoca Open 60 racing yachts.

A brief introduction to OPEN 60's

Open 60 is a website dedicated to the world of IMOCA Open 60's both old and new showing the sailing teams behind them and the Open 60 skippers of these performance racing yachts.

As high end custom racing machines built for endurance short handed racing (quite often solo challenge sailing) such as The Barcelona World Race, The Velux 5 Oceans, Route de Rhum- La Banque Postale, Europa Race, The Artemis Transat and of course the pinnacle in most eyes The Vendee Globe.

"One skipper, one boat, around the world non stop with no assistance"

Whether you're a keen sailor or have never even seen a sailing boat, the human side of these open 60 yachts and their endeavours along the race course in some of the most gruelling and inhospitable places on earth is inspiring to man, woman and child.

To quote another incredible sailor of the older generation who still holds his head high among the sailing elite "There are more people who have been to space than sailed around the world non stop and unassisted" Sir Robin Knox-Johnston *(first person EVER to sail around the world non stop and solo 1968-1969)

Please feel free to pose questions or ideas to us here at we look forward to sharing the excitement of the Open 60 world with you.
