Paul Meilhat’s Biotherm will compete in The Ocean Race

French skipper Paul Meilhat will fulfill a lifelong dream in January 2023 when he leads Biotherm across the starting line of The Ocean Race on the waters off Alicante, Spain.

The Ocean Race today announced that Meilhat and his team will be racing one of the newest IMOCA boats in the fleet, a Verdier design that is expected to compete for the title in The Ocean Race 2022-23, before Meilhat will go on to sail in the next edition of the single-handed Vendée Globe.

“I am very happy to officially announce our participation in The Ocean Race with Biotherm,” said Meilhat. “I have been working to be at the start of this event for the last three years.

“Everything about The Ocean Race excites me. It’s about the sport, but it’s also about traveling around the world and being able to discover other countries and create links with new people; all of this is great and I’m keen to feel the full story of one of the great events in our sport.

“We are lucky to have a great boat to participate in the entire IMOCA GLOBE SERIES programme. I am thrilled that we have secured our participation in The Ocean Race, which adds a new, even more international dimension to our campaign.
