It is a great honour to be able to support the foundation and help them with their research.
Ocean racing is a very comprehensive sport that puts the whole body under extreme duress. It is vitally important to know your limits to perform safely.
Malnutrition along with sleep deprivation, physical overload and physical traumas linked to the brutality of being at sea are all the parameters you must take into account and manage to be able to increase performances of this complex man/machine coupling.
Boats are constantly evolving, they are more powerful, go faster and therefore even more traumatising for the human body.
It is thanks to the collection of studies that will be carried out by the foundation that we will be able to better understand the consequences of this sport on a sailor’s organism.
See you soon and Fair winds everyone!
