One of the favourites of the Vendee Globe, the IMOCA Banque Populaire VIII monotype skipper Armel Le Cleac 'h has found a new use for the lateral wings that his yacht is equipped with. Two IMOCA 60 Class yachts also have these wings. The other is Safran, whose skipper Morgan Lagravière has not tried to lie down on a wing, but has had his photo taken on it very nicely standing up. Safran and Banque Populaire VIII will be competing in the Vendee Globe solo circumnavigation, which will start from Les Sables d'Olonne in France on November 6.
