Earthrace Helm

The Earthrace is a wave-piercing trimaran, purpose built for endurance on rough seas and currently holds the world record for circumnavigating the globe in 61 days. It was Alain Brideson's role to design a simple and functional helm which fitted in with the boat's unique aesthetic. The key considerations were to have a surrounding dashboard which sheltered the instruments from the exterior light and provide the crew with maximum ergonomics and visibility.
