lundi 27 mars 2023 –
"Breaking the blue ribbon record Record #sailingrecord on Realteam’s 10th anniversary is a strong message. I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished today and would like to dedicate this feat to the Léman hope project," said Esteban Garcia, founder of Realteam Sailing, in a passionate interview on the dock.
"I am thrilled to have broken the Blue Ribbon record Record #sailingrecord , especially on its opening day ! This victory is above all a team effort. We are united as a team to overcome the unexpected," exults Jérôme Clerc.
On their TF35 high-performance one-design foiling catamaran, Realteam for Léman hope started just before noon in 22 knots and reached a maximum speed of 34 knots on the approach to Lausanne. Despite a patch of light breeze near the halfway turning buoy in Bouveret, the sailors regained their momentum, flight, and speed to the finish line.
For Realteam for Léman hope this is just the start of their 2023 season. The team will now take on six other TF35s racing on the seven-stop TF35 Trophy tour starting in May with the Geneva Cup and finishing in Malcesine on Lake Garda, Italy, in late September.
