An extraordinary race

This race is internationally recognized.

A boat built for adventure

The XP 20 is a 6-meter ballasted dinghy, designed by Sam Manuard. This boat was designed from the start to participate in this challenge. It is THE boat for two teammates.

This simple, easy to use and reliable monohull is equipped with a small cabin. It has the particularity of being equipped with a rowing station like a rowing boat, perfect to continue the adventure in the calm zones and not to lose time when the wind leaves the game.
