Vendée Globe 2016-2017 Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

On 21 September 1876, baroness Julie de Rothschild inaugurated her auxiliary schooner, La Gitana, on Lake Geneva where she smashed the speed record. Back then, nobody suspected that this passion for on-the-water competitiveness would continue through to the modern day in the Franco-Swiss line of the Rothschild family. As such, in 2016, Ariane and Benjamin are celebrating a quite unique maritime-themed family saga, 140 years of daring, performance and human adventure through the legendary history (...)

At 15h06'49'' GMT this Wednesday 8 June, the skipper of the Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild crossed the finish line of the Transat New York Vendée in Les Sables d'Olonne, western France. With a race time of 9 days, 19 hours, 26 minutes and 49 seconds from Manhattan, Sébastien Josse secures second place, 2hrs28 behind winner Jérémie Beyou (Maître CoQ).

Sébastien Josse expected into Les Sables d'Olonne late afternoon

Transat New York - Vendée Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

For the past ten days almost, this Transat New York Vendée has offered up a whole range of weather scenarios in the North Atlantic, culminating with a light airs finish as the front runners approach the French coast. At noon, this Wednesday, Sébastien Josse was making headway around forty miles off Les Sables d'Olonne, still in a north-easterly wind of 6-10 knots, which is gradually backing round to the North and could even pick up to 12-15 knots close to shore with the effects of the thermal (...)

The last 24 hours

Transat New York - Vendée Mono60 Edmond de Rothschild

Whilst the thirteen solo sailors still out on the racetrack tackle their 9th day at sea, the outcome of the Transat New York - Vendée is imminent for the front runners, who are expected to make landfall around midday tomorrow. However, now more than ever, access into Les Sables d'Olonne's famous channel is proving to be a tough challenge with the last few miles reminiscent of a long, hard road for the top trio made up of Sébastien Josse, Jérémie Beyou and Alex Thomson. Indeed, though the summer (...)
