STP Shipyard Palma collaborates in the fine tunning of Didac Costa’s One Planet One Ocean for Vendée Globe
STP Shipyard Palma has welcomed Didac Costa aboard the One Ocean One Planet, an IMOCA Open 60’ that will set sail on November 8th in one of the toughest and most demanding competitions on the planet, the Vendée Globe.
During its stay at STP Shipyard Palma, various works will be carried out on the boat as a follow-up to the improvements made so far, among which are the change of the motor shaft, adjustments to the rudder, details on the keel, and mechanical parts of the joining between the boom and the mast.
Various nautical companies based in Mallorca are also collaborating in this fine tunning, such as Grupo Barco, SNIP, Cover Up, Testia, Sebastiá Sitjar and Akzonobel, which, like STP Shipyard Palma, offer their services selflessly and at zero cost or at the lowest cost possible like Quantum Palma. The supportive response has been resounding and everyone who knows the project in which Didac is immersed have not hesitated to collaborate, hoping that the departure of this yacht in November to the other side of the ocean will be a great success.
Didac Costa, Catalan, 39 years old, a firefighter by profession, passionate about the sea and proud owner of the One Planet One Ocean, will participate in this regatta for the second time, although it will be his third round the world. The challenge is maximum, since, to the solo navigation, without stops or assistance, is added the enormous financial support that needs prior to departure and the more than 30 competitors that will face.
From STP Shipyard Palma we encourage companies to collaborate with this great adventurer and we begin with the countdown to the great departure on November 8th, 2020.
