    Just read Day and McCormick's book "Out There" about the early 80's BOC single-handed race around the world won by Philippe Jeantot in a 56 ft aluminum cutter. Does anyone know where online I might find the lines of this boat? I'm curious about the "state of the art" at that time.

    Doubt you'll find lines anywhere. There's a bit on the designer's site......

    The boat was big and heavy compared to today's boats, she carried 5000 kg of fixed ballast in the keel plus 1500 l of salt water ballast in a transfer system like that in Pen Duick V. She also had twin "running boards", aft outward angled stabilizer daggerboards. Four of the 8 boats in class A dropped out, Credit Agricole was just a bit more reliable than her rivals, not significantly faster.

    Maybe not, but she finished in 159 days---(second place was almost 12 days later )

    You can have the lines through Library Le Hussard providing plans for models, the one for Credit Agricole is available :
    Librairie Le Hussard - Modélisme Modèle réduit de bateau Yachts à voile https://librairie-hussard.com/catalog/yachts-voile-c-142_30054_50018.html

    On this site, Shadok17 is building one from these plans, you can see photos of his ongoing works:

    Chevalier Taglang made in 2013 a comparison of the designs from early BOC to present Vendée Globe :

    Many thanks Dolfiman, that is exactly what I was looking for!
