Classics on the next Route du Rhum

Not what you would have expected as Classics and yet they are classics, old fast racers whose performance cannot match modern ones but certainly still very enjoyable boats to race.

Many other races have boats of this "vintage" as favorites but we know that on this one all the cream of solo racers will be there.

They could extend the idea and have a class for Open60's with no canting keel: Lots of them around doing minor races. That would bring even more interest to the big one that in what regards relevance and solo racing only has an equal on the Vendee Globe, even if the last one has much less types of boats racing.
