The first race of the season, a tricky route where strategy will be key, lots of tidal gates and islands rounding, so many chances to gain spots… or lose some.
Who has not heard about the Fastnet race? Well if you haven’t it’s a bit like the 24h du Mans but for sailing. It’s also a double-handed race, the name of the co-skipper to be disclosed at a later stage.
The result of 2 years of training and preparation and many more years of dreams and expectations. It will be long and tough, but every second of the race will be important, so brace for 3 to 4 weeks of intense sailing.
The Peru Challenge Race
The Peru Challenge Race is the last big race before the Transat. It’s a 2 leg race starting from the west coast of France, near Les Sables d’Olonne, all the way to Getxo in Spain. After a few days stopover there, the race returns to the same port in France. It will be the opportunity to test the final adjustments on the boats, validate systems…etc.
