Vendee Globe 2012
The Vendee Globe is an around the world boat race with no stop over during 4 months. The aim of the program is to monitor the boats engaged in the 2012 Race. Twenty boats will be equipped with keel-over beacons, which transmit only upon a boat capsize. The tracking will improve the safety at sea of the crew and the SAR operation if necessary.
