Three brothers in a boat ! (apologies to Jerome K. Jerome..)
Fourth time around for this inimitable crew. A crew made up of three brothers and their childhood mates. Their aim is clear: “Win a place! On board all is well. We are getting better and better organised!” stated co-skipper Jean-Christophe Vergé. “We have sailed together for over ten years. Some of us know each other since we did Optimist classes together.”
In 2014, they finished in 4d 17h. In 2012 they did a bit better : 4d 10h. This year, with the help of a school class of supporters, this close-knit crew intend doing even better! And to achieve that, they will need wind: XLR8-Province Sud is a fast boat that planes well and is good to windward. A Trade Wind over 15 knots means that they could be a bit of a worry to larger competitors!
