"Last week, I talk about my favourite jigsaw, the race course elaboration. This week, another interesting Rubik's cub : The new boat ! As you probably know, the boat for the next two race editions will be a 6.5 foot monotype : the VOR65. Our organization has asked four boat yards to build it. Multiplast from Vannes, will be in charge of building of the deck, Persico (Italia) will build the hull, Decision (Switzerland) the bulkheads and Green Marine (UK) will look after the final fitting of all the pieces. Today, the building enters a very exciting phase. The hull and deck of the first boat are finished. This 2 pieces will be sent to Green Marine by road on a truck to be fitted. It's there that the jigsaw starts to take shape.

The Sodebo skipper has just confirmed his choice of boat-yard Multiplast to undertake the transformation necessary to get maxi-trimaran 'Geronimo' ready to compete in a range of races, the first objective being the 2014 Route du Rhum.

A magnificent challenge...

2013 has started well for the Vannes based yard ; a few weeks away from the delivery of the 1st one-design deck for the Volvo Ocean Race, this new order will represent a build worth several months of work for the teams at Multiplast.

A great "Bravo" to Franck Cammas and his crew for this brilliant victory in their first participation to the VOLVO OCEAN RACE.

During the eight months of this race, they have been improving constantly and achieve in Galway (Ireland) a beautiful performance.
They prove that in sailing, a French team can win against the best international teams.
TAll the staff at MULTIPLAST was feeling a thrill all along this round the world race. This result confirms the company's status amongst the world leaders in composite materials processing.
