Road to the Route du Rhum 2018

Saison 2016

_BO_9202

After an other tour in the Caribbean the last few weeks for some racing on bigger boats, I am back in Switzerland trying to organize my season! After a very full on 18 month leading up to the last Minitransat and some sailing offers which fell through last minute it took a little while to make up a plan for next Season. Eight cube is in a yard with still a few points to tick off on the job list.

 

Here is the plan:

Sail one more season with Eight Cube and prepare for the big race of the year

Les Sables – Acores – Les Sables (2x1270nm solo) 

I feel like Eight Cube and I still need a bit more time on the water together to get closer to her full potential. Little tweaking has already been done in the yard to make her quicker and more reliable.

To be able to do that I still need to find some budget, but that is work in progress!

 

The scedual looks like this:

9. April Lorient BSM Mini  150nm doublehanded

30. April Pornichet Séléct 300nm solo

24. May Mini en Mai 500nm solo

9. June Trophée MAP 220nm solo

19. June Minifastnet 600nm doublehanded

27. Juliet Les Sables – Acores – Les Sables  2540nm solo
