Because of bad weather and strong gusts of wind, competitors of the Chrono 6.50 could not ride for the last leg.

The organizers decided it was safer to cancel this last day, which was the opportunity for both crewmembers of the Chrono 6.50 and the Volvo Ocean Race to meet together.

For the competitors of the Chrono 6.50, the 2012 edition was quite a special one. Indeed, they have been invited to join the festival by Lorient Grand Large and were welcomed on the Honor pontoon of the Volvo Ocean Race.

Two events must be put in the light for this special edition. First, Simon Koster on the series boat Go4it has established a new record time with 3h 07mn 56s. Then, some crewmembers of the Volvo Ocean Race have had the opportunity to try those little sportboats to taste new sensations. Nicolas Boidevezi took on board a member of the technical team of Camper, also specialized in match racing in New Zealand. One has discovered a new machine still unknown on the other side of the Earth, the other took advantage of the knowledge of a brilliant crew at the bar. A proof that mixing the different culture is quite enriching.
