NEW IN 2016

A reference website for Brest: port of records
Brest Métropole is launching a dedicated website celebrating all attempts and records achieved in the past, and those to come, on board large multihulls.
It features a comprehensive history of sailors who have defied stopwatch and ocean: Louis-Antoine de Bougainville on La Boudeuse in 1766; Loïck Peyron and the crew of the Banque Populaire V Maxi-Trimaran, who won the Jules Verne Trophy in 2012; Sir Francis Chichester in 1967; Olivier de Kersauson in 1989; Lady Ellen MacArthur in 2005; and Francis Joyon in 2008 – all of whom had a link with the Brittany port… For more information, look out for Brest Métropole at the 2016 Nautic Boat Show.
