With Brit Air 2nd skippered by French Armel Le Cleac'h and Generali 3rd helmed by French Yann Elies, Multiplast is proud to walk with that two talented "captains" who have been confident with the Briton yard, builder of their boats. Atypical edition, which have seen various weather conditions, it demonstrates the reliability and the performance of the Finot-Conq designs built by Multiplast.
A nice podium in the wake of the winner Loïck Peyron aboard Gitana 80, and a nice award for that two navigators who have not been so lucky since the launch of their boats (April 07 for Generali and July 2007 for Brit Air).

And for Brit Air, her qualification for that event, Generali having succeed in during the B ot B Transat (Bahia/Brasil to Port-La-Foret/France) last December, after the Transat Jacques Vabre.
