Organised by OC Events, the 13th edition of The Transat, now known as The Artemis Transat will start 11th May, 2008 from Sutton Harbour, Plymouth (UK), and finish in Boston, USA. Created in 1960 by Sir Francis Chichester and Blondie Hasler, and often known until 2004 as the OSTAR, the oldest solo race in history has created many legends over the last four decades. The 2008 edition will be a monohull only race for the first time since multihulls were introduced in 1964. Two monohull classes are confirmed as IMOCA 60 and Class 40 – a mix of pre-eminent ocean racing IMOCA skippers with a class that contains aspiring ocean racing professionals and accomplished amateurs.
