The owners of the trimarans Ultim Banque Populaire, Macif and Sodebo met up in 2013, to create an ‘Ultim Collective’ to manage these extraordinary boats and organize events.
Here is the pre-established program for 2015 to 2020. In 2015, the giant trimarans will be meeting up for the Transat Jacques Vabre. 2016 will be the year for breaking records (Atlantic, Mediterranean, singlehanded round the world...) for the whole fleet. In 2017, a transatlantic race in the spring will precede a ‘Trophée Solo’ - in record mode – around the world via the 3 Capes, where the boats will start as a fleet. 2018 is the Route du Rhum year, a major objective for all the sailors... Finally, in 2019, we should see a Round the World race as a fleet.
A program that the brand new trimaran Macif, which has only just been launched, will certainly not miss. The first outings seem promising. The crew now has very little time to validate the boat and be ready for the start of the Transat Jacques Vabre on 25th October.
