Flight towards Hawaii

For Alain Thébault and his team, May is the beginning of a new era. Berthed at the dock of the Marina of Los Angeles, "Der fliegende Franzose" (Geo Germany March issue) is now facing the Pacific swell and will sail from Los Angeles to Honolulu (Hawaii) to meet his friends André Borschberg and Bertrand Piccard, and simultaneously attempt to break the Transpac record.

A film will be shot to denounce the pollution of the ocean unfortunately littered with trash and other plastics, in collaboration with the Paul Ricard Oceanographic Institute and the assistance expected from the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation actively working on these issues that will unfortunately impact the coming generations.

The crew of the Hydroptere is proud to welcome James Spithill, winner of the last America's Cup
Alain Thébault, skipper of the Hydroptere, will be accompanied by team members representing five nations: his faithful co-skipper, Jacques Vincent, with 8 circumnavigations and other leading crewmen from England, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and the Australian James Spithill, winner of the last America's Cup on AC 72. He sailed on the Hydroptere in 2012 and was fascinated. And inspired …
