Racing with not one, but two IMOCA 60s, 11th Hour Racing Team are taking on the 5,800-nautical miles racecourse across the Atlantic Ocean. Sailing onboard Mālama, the Team’s recently launched boat, are co-skippers Charlie Enright and Pascal Bidégorry, with Justine Mettraux and Simon Fisher co-skippering Alaka’i.
