Brest Atlantiques has everything it takes to become a classic

Sodebo Ultim 3, the only boat to have abandoned the race after stopping in Cape Town, arrived back in Lorient this morning, bringing the very first Brest Atlantiques race comes to a close. Maxi Edmond de Rothschild took first place, ahead of MACIF in second and Actual Leader in third. Now the race is over, we had the chance to speak with Emmanuel Bachellerie, Director of Brest Ultim Sailing, the organizing authority of Brest Atlantiques.

What is your sporting assessment of Brest Atlantiques?
The race was very exciting to follow, with a number of technical pitstops that kept the game alive. It was a great sporting event in terms of what these boats are capable of, not to mention the skippers at the helm! With three out of the four boats managing to finish, and just one stopping a little short, we’re pretty satisfied with the end results and feel like the objectives of the race were met.
