What’s New On The Water?

Last year, two great innovations were added: a fifth day of competition and the organization of the Richard Mille Record Trophy—to award the boat that has the fastest time on a 60-mile race between the islands.

Race director Luc Poupon did not want to stop there, and has a new more surprises up his sleeve this year.

“After the 2018 edition, we did a poll of the crews to get an idea of their desires and allow the organization to improve,” he explains.

“Quite a few shared their desire to have shorter and more varied courses. We listened to them and are going in that direction for the 10th edition. We are also planning for two race committees to cover a larger zone around the island and offer races adapted to each class.”
