Many people were hoping for this and some were expecting it, but now it has been confirmed.  The next America’s Cup will take place using multihulls, a 72-foot catamaran with a rigid wing. Lire la suite / More »

<!–:fr–>Pascal Bidégorry : «The Race, c’est le top!»<!–:–><!–:en–>Pascal Bidégorry: “The Race, it’s the best!”<!–:–>

The Atlantic Record of 3 and a half days, the 24 hour record of 908 miles, the Mediterranean record of 14 hours at an average speed in excess of 33 knots: clearly the maxi trimaran Banque Populaire V is of noble birth. For Pascal Bidégorry and his crew, there is just one record missing and it is the most important one: the Jules Verne Trophy, which they’ll attempt this winter. Following that the Basque skipper makes no secret of the fact that he’d love to take part in The Race 2…. Lire la suite / More »

<!–:fr–>Vincent Lauriot Prevost… vers une nouvelle classe de 100 pieds ?<!–:–><!–:en–>Vincent Lauriot Prévost… moving towards a new class of 100-foot boats?<!–:–>

The VPLP design team is known around around the world for its expertise in the area of big trimarans. Over the past few months, boats designed by them have encountered huge successes: Oracle, the winner of the 33rd America’s Cup; Banque Populaire V, the holder of the Atlantic and Mediterranean records and Groupama 3, recent winner of the Jules Verne Trophy. The history books tell us too about the record breakers such as Sport-Elec, which became Idec, and Geronimo. We met up with Vincent Lauriot Prévost, who was pleased to learn that The Race was being relaunched and is working on the idea of drawing up class rules for the current 100-foot boats, which would allow a new generation of maxi-multihulls to be designed.

<!–:fr–>Interview de Thierry Reboul, Directeur de The Race<!–:–><!–:en–>Interview with Thierry Reboul, Director of The Race<!–:–>

- Can you explain how you became involved with Bruno Peyron and The Race?
My encounter with The Race goes back to the year 2000. Like many other people, I was amazed by this challenge, which was so much more than a mere sailing race. I followed this race very closely. Yet, I’m not exactly what you might call a yachtie…no, what won me over was the idea of the outright challenge that The Race represents. Meeting Bruno happened much more recently. I think it happened at the right time for both of us.

<!–:fr–>Nigel Irens dessinerait bien un (très) grand trimaran<!–:–><!–:en–>Nigel Irens would like to design a (very) big trimaran<!–:–>

Nigel Irens is among the boat designers, who have come up with the fastest ocean-racing multihulls of the last thirty years. Along with Benoit Cabaret he was behind the 100-foot trimarans designed for Francis Joyon (IDEC), Thomas Coville (Sodeb”O) and Sydney Gavignet (Majan), and Nigel Irens does not hide the fact that he finds the return of The Race an interesting prospect. As long as the race does not end up opposing “No Limit” giants and the 100-foot trimarans. Although of course, The Race will invite both classes of boat to be at the start. The British designer talks about creating class rules for 100-foot trimarans, while imagining what a very big “no limits” trimaran would be like. Here’s what he had to say… Lire la suite / More »
