Biosourced plastic cases tested on Minis
As the first IB models start sailing on various boats (Diam 24, VOR 70, Wally 80…), we wanted to try out new, “cleaner” materials for the cases of the 3.6 and 2.4. Actuaplast, our plastics partner found two types of biosourced plastic: Algoblend (seaweed based) and natureplast (wheat and sugar cane based).
We equipped two class mini boats with them: Jonas Gerkens’ number 821 and Damien Cloarec’s 833. They will try them out during the entire season on the Mini circuit until the Mini Transat in September.
