IMOCA60 Safran sold to Kaïros

After twelve years of involvement on the IMOCA Ocean Masters circuit, three Vendée Globes and numerous podium finishes, and the construction of two IMOCA 60 boats, Safran announced its decision last February to withdraw from sailing sponsorship in June 2017.

In March, the Group put the boat up for sale and gave Kaïros* the right of first refusal until May 30, 2017. Roland Jourdain and Sophie Vercelletto, the co-managers of Kaïros, have announced their intention to buy the boat in order to continue on a Vendée Globe 2020 project with skipper Morgan Lagravière.

Kaïros will officially own the boat from July 1st, 2017.
