THOMAS RUYANT (39), LINKEDOUT (2019)

-

Ruyant is an experience­d ocean racer with a new, fast boat, and as such a clear podium contender. Having retired from the last Vendée after his boat began breaking up near New Zealand, Ruyant commission­ed a brand new Verdier design before he had sponsorshi­p secured. The gamble paid off, and he now has a fully funded campaign and promising new foiler: Linkedout took the early lead in the Vendée-arctic Race, before finishing a close 3rd to Charal and Apivia.
