THEY CROSSED THE LINE USHANT CAPE LIZARD AT 21H 14MN 35S UTC. CONGRATS BANQUE POP GUYS ! WE'RE WAITING FOR YOU AT HOME IN LORIENT SUNDAY AFTERNOON.

After having blasted the speed record around the world the 40 m long maxi-tri skippered by Loick Peyron will come back to her Lorient homeport Sunday 8 January afternoon, at Submarine Base, which will be the venue for Volvo Ocean Race french stopover. 

Loïck Peyron and his 14 crew mates will be welcome by Norbert Métairie, Mayor of Lorient and President of Cap Lorient Agglomeration, delighted by the success of this boat based in Lorient and built in Lorient  in 2007. 

 

This amazing sailing machine was launched in Lorient the 26th of August 2007


This is the biggest racing sailing trimaran in the world : 40 m long, 23 m wide, a 45 m high mast, 270 000 work hours, 170 workers involved through two years.

To design and build this Giant, the team get benefit of a full synergia existing in Lorient between the offshore racing pole and companies and suppliers based closely. A such exceptional project that Lorient was one of the few sites where it could has been realized. 


Lorient is particularly proud of this success because the Team Banque Populaire took the Jules Verne Trophy from the hands of Groupama Sailing Team, french entries in the current Volvo Ocean Race, also based in Lorient. 


So the Jules Verne Trophy will not leave our nice city of South Brittany !
