Competitions follow each other for Chamoniard é Relian Ducros. Eighth Les Sables – Horta – Les Sables lined up for the first race of its new Class 40 crosscall boat in July, the Haut-Sawyard Sunday (11:30 am) Rolex Fastnet Race.
Considered to be the “largest race in the world” with 458 cruises (including 39 Class 40), the event will connect Ross Blanchard to the shores of Cherburg, from the island of Covas in England, via Fastnet Rock in southern Ireland. The first arrival is scheduled for Monday.
“The Azores’ goal was to actually spend 13 days at sea, and the course contained as many lessons as possible, but it was a little disappointing because we often had to lighten up, ”the crew explains in the communication.
“In FastNet, the goal is to navigate without asking any questions. We guarantee more with a boat that we do not yet know and that is better than ever. We can also enjoy small sounds without stress. The weather forecast announces a little wind, so we should be able to do a real full gas race, which is great! “
Transat Jack Wabre in Views
Assurance statements after the complicated July. “We thought we’d train for 15 days, and in the end it was a 15-day job! After eight months of construction and three weeks of sailing, getting the boat out of the water is not the most comfortable life.”
He explains: “We had two problems in the Azores race. One was on the flagpole, so we had to disassemble the boat to redo the parts of the rope. Another in a rudder that is not surprising for a prototype in development. But we took the opportunity to improve on-board aeronautics, add fittings, optimize systems and improve energy consumption. “
Aurelian Ducross and David Sino have only been selected to prepare for Transat Jacques Wabray, this year’s biggest target, which is set to take place in November.
