14,000 Miles and a Victory Resumed in 5 Minutes

Brest Atlantiques Maxi Edmond de Rothschild Franck Cammas Charles Caudrelier

Last 4th December, the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild accomplished a victorious return to Brest after crossing the Atlantic in a big loop taking nearly 29 days. At the helm of Ariane and Benjamin de Rothschild's giant, Franck Cammas and Charles Caudrelier exploded with joy after finishing a race controlled from the beginning to end. Nine months after their arrival within the Gitana Team, both men (skippers?) succeeded in offering the first great off shore victory to Gitana 17, thus demonstrating that the project initiated by the five arrow team four years earlier lived up to its expectations. The Maxi de Rothschild is the first racing maxi trimaran capable of flying in high seas.
