Brest Atlantiques: start delayed!
Well, as soon as we told the readers that Brest Atlantiques, the new Ultim class maxi trimarans super race, would start on Sunday in Brest, the start … was postponed!
The thing is that a great storm is approaching Brest. “On Sunday, waves in the Bay of Biscay will exceed eight meters,” race director Jacques Caraes told reporters. “There is no point in risking trimarans in such conditions.”
Start Brest Atlantiques decided to postpone for several days. The exact date is not yet known, but it will absolutely happen next week.
