It’s time for round two of offshore racing’s most exciting new competition! Seven Ocean Fifty foiling trimarans that regularly see speeds of up to 42 knots are converging on Brest in Finistère, Brittany, this week for Episode 2 of the Pro Sailing Tour (23-26 June).
After a spectacular opening Episode in Bonifacio, Corsica, in May that saw Quentin Vlamynck (FRA), the youngest skipper in the fleet onboard Arkema snatch victory from close rivals Sam Goodchild (GBR), the defending PST champion on Leyton, and Erwan Le Roux (FRA) on Koesio, the fleet scattered to various corners of Europe to prepare for the next event.
AMBITIONS ARE RUNNING HIGH
Brest is the birthplace of the Pro Sailing Tour. The dream setting that has played host to so many offshore racing exploits is where it all began in 2021, and the Marina du Chateau is looking forward to welcoming the fleet back for two days of adrenalin-fuelled inshore races on Thursday and Friday, followed by a 24-hour Challenge, the “24h in Finistère”, over the weekend.
