At 42-years-old, Isabelle Joschke is one of the few women to have invested herself at 100% in the offshore race, where she has has accumulated a lot of experience on various kinds of boats (Mini 6.50, Figaro, Class 40', IMOCA). Committed to gender diversity, she intends to join the very closed circle of women who have taken part to the Vendée Globe, by participating to the 2020 edition, alongside her new sponsor, the MACSF.
MACSF (main sponsor) and MONIN (secondary sponsor) have signed up alongside Isabelle JOSCHKE and LANIC SPORT TEAM (Alain GAUTIER’s offshore racing stable) for the next three years. Several major IMOCA races await the sailor and her partners, including the Transat Jacques Vabre (double-handed race, starts on 27 October 2019) and the Vendée Globe (singlehanded race, starts on 8 November 2020). And it’s aboard the completely transformed IMOCA that Isabelle will take the start of her two races. Indeed, her sixty-footer went into refit in late December 2018 so as to benefit from several major revamps, including the addition of foils and the installation of a new wing mast. The objective: increased power and speed to compete with the foilers!
