Winner of Vendée Globe Single-handed, Around-the-World Sailboat Race Guided by SP90m GNSS Receiver

Nantes, France (February 2021) – A Spectra Geospatial SP90m GNSS receiver provided the precise position and boat heading information for the Maître Coq IV, the winning boat in the ninth quadrennial Vendée Globe around-the-world non-stop sailing race. The Maître Coq IV, skippered by Yannick Bestaven, beat a field of thirty-three competing 60-foot foiling monohull sailboats.

In one or the closest finishes in the race’s history, Bestaven’s Maître Coq IV completed the 24,000-Mile voyage in 80 days 3 hours 44 minutes 46 seconds, two hours ahead of the second-place finisher. An extreme endurance test for both sailor, boat and equipment, the Vendée Globe is widely considered the ultimate challenge in ocean racing.
