The Solitaire is considered to be a challenging and demanding competition on every level, psychologically, physically and tactically. 47 skippers aboard their new Beneteau Figaro 3 hydrofoils will be in the starting blocks to win this 50th edition, and many in the fleet are fully equipped with North Sails.
