Hi Folks,

Sorry to have been out of touch, but have been very busy with our project. 

Many of you have been wondering what’s going on so: This is to let you know that our Vendee Globe Challenge effort has recently received substantial funding that will allow us to continue full steam ahead! I can’t tell you everything yet, but be on the lookout for a new announcement. 

This is now a no-holds-barred, full-on serious program. We have a top notch support team for the most advanced yet practical Vendee boat ever! 

I want to give a special thanks to all of you who contributed to our effort. You believed in me and made it possible for our team to get started. I can’t thank you all enough and hope you will be at the launching party! (Date TBA) 

More news soon, stay tuned!
Bruce Schwab
