A beautiful edition in a two year story
Reunited at sea, Eric and Clement took to this edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre in good spirits. Pushing the boat that little further after the Vendée Globe 2020-21, with a good choice of sails they were able to have an enjoyable yet sporty sail to Martinique.
Erik Nigon - "It's been almost two years since we started this adventure. Two years of happiness. It's not the end of a story, but a stage. We knew each other a little bit, we knew that we were going to have a good laugh and time together. We really wanted to show that we knew how to sail a boat, so we fought hard.
Clément Giraud - "We are very happy with the sail choices we made after the Vendée Globe, the conclusions we were able to draw. We were there for three weeks to put the gas on, to do what we had never done on the boat single-handed. We didn't break anything on board so we were pulling 100% on the boat. It was great."
