Vincent Riou and Jean Le Cam have just won the 11th
edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre in the IMOCA class. On board PRB
, the two sailors took the lead after a very intense fight against François Gabart and Michel Desjoyeaux. But in the night of 21st
November, the latter had to abandon the race asMACIF
dismasted, leaving the way open for their pursuers.
Unique crewmember and elite helmsman on Hydroptere since her first flights, Jean Le Cam concluded his season with a victory. In 2014, the triple winner of the Solitaire du Figaro will get ready for the Transpacific record on board Hydroptere.
Alain Thébault and all the Hydroptere team congratulate Vincent and Jean for this wonderful victory.
