Route du Rhum – coming soon


Route du Rhum – coming soon

As is the case every four years, there is excitement everywhere at the approach of the Rhum, certainly the most important of the singlehanded transatlantic races, the one that all the skippers dream of adding to their racing record.

On the start line for this tenth edition we will have the ‘Ultimes’, including the gigantic Spindrift 2 (40 metres long, current holder of the fully-crewed round the world record), Banque Populaire VII (31.5 m – the trimaran which won the last Rhum in the hands of Franck Cammas), the new Sodebo (34m), Prince de Bretagne 80 (24m), Idec (29.7m), the MOD 70s, including Musandam-Oman Sail, et certainly a few others... In short, an impressive entry list for a race which should be sensational.
In the Multi50 class, the race between those aiming to win will also be hard-fought, and only a genius would risk forecasting the result: Actual, Maitre Jacques, Fenetrea Cardinal, Rennes Métropole/Saint-Malo Agglomération (winner of the last edition), and of course Arkema, will once again be demonstrating why we think nothing but good about this class.
But what will have us all dreaming is the three A Capellas we will find at the start of the Rhum. These are sister ships (11.5m long) of the first winner, in 1978, which launched the Rhum legend by winning by just 98 seconds, ahead of a 21-metre monohull. At the helm of these wonders we will of course find Charlie Capelle (who is taking part for the fourth time on his favourite boat) and Loïck Peyron, who will be starting the tenth edition of one of the rare races he has not won... Incredible!
