Acceleration

Today has been the first real day of racing since the VO70 arrived in Lorient. Even if the Pro-Am does not give any point, those races are good trainings and can put the opponent under pressure.

On earth the show goes on increasing with the Interceltic  Festival of Lorient and above all with the firework display of the Group F.

Points are counted.  During the Pro-Am race, the crews wanted above all to show they were still here without forgetting that the real fight starts tomorrow. It is more a matter of intimidation than a race, but once again Groupama 4 won.

Saturday, Pierre-Louis Castelli, who was today our commentator for the Pro-Am, will comment in live tomorrow the In-Port  Race from the village, with the backing of Pierre-Yves Lautrou, on board a yacht, who will give informations about the atmosphere on the water, the fight between boats and the passage of the marks. Tomorrow and Sunday at 1.02 p.m, the village will leave the race in live.

Traditional festivities

Saturday evening, the show will be held by the Interceltic Festival of Lorient. The IFL has prepared a festive program with Celtics music where tradition and modernity will join together. The show will start with the Bagdad de Lorient, then Breizharock with Soïg Siberil ou Pat O’May, and the Scottish group  Salsa Celtica.

They will stand on the main stage up to 11.30 p.m. The night will end up with a great firework display show hold by the group F. This group was in charge of the Eiffel Tower, Turin and Athena Olympics Games firework. The show is kept secret but we can image it will be the best firework that Lorient had never seen. A great moment for the Volvo Ocean Race.
