The Vendée Globe is a solo, non-stop ocean race starting from Les Sables d'Olonne in the Vendée region of France. In the 2024 race, Skipper Romain Attanasio will rely on numerous on-board sensors to collect data from the boat, as well as internet connectivity to ingest external feeds such as weather.
