Complicity paid off onboard Prysmian Group
The emotions ran high on the pontoon of Fort-de-France, as the pair demonstrated their natural collaboration and spoke of them never imagining a sixth place when leaving Le Havre.
Giancarlo Pedote -"We are very happy. I had a good feeling before the start, and everything went well. We divided the tasks on board. Martin managed the navigation throughout the race. He was very methodical; he did all the analysis. Then we made the choices together. I think it's this fluidity that got us here today.
We had many moments of complicity. We didn't know each other very well, but we had a great time throughout the race. We were working a lot, but we were able to take the pressure off easily. It was very smooth. He was a dream teammate; I'm delighted to have shared this race with him. We couldn't have done better."
Martin Le Pape - "It was magical. It's quite rare that duos work so well. I'm super happy to be here with Giancarlo. We had a great race; we didn't expect that. Sometimes we did something, it worked right away. Everything went our way. We worked a lot; we didn't give up on the trajectories. But if someone had told us we were going to do sixth in the Transat Jacques Vabre, we wouldn't have believed it."
