One, two, three...Go!

The Rolex Fastnet Race, the first major double-handed race of the IMOCA season, will start from Cowes on August 6th.
IMOCA will sail for 608 miles from Cowes (Isle of Wight, UK) and then go round the Rock of Fastnet for an arrival in Plymouth.

This first race of the season is a first major confrontation for our skippers because no fewer than 5 foilers participate as well as SMA and Generali, the most performing IMOCA with drifts. This race allows the skippers to measure each other and to make the boats more reliable.

Arnaud Boissières and Manuel Cousin aboard La Mîe Caline Artipole experienced a disappointment with their keel ram last weekend on their way to Cherbourg.
They are currently doing everything possible to repair quickly thanks to the responsiveness of HYDROEM and the kindness of Fabrice Amedeo who could lend them a spare rod of keel ram so that they can line up at the start of this mythical race.

This year 9 IMOCA will participate in the race:
