Multihull Trophy / Day 1

It’s back to work time for the IDEC SPORT maxi-trimaran, which took part in the first race in the Multihull Trophy on Tuesday morning. Francis Joyon and his crewmen sailed a 38-mile course around Houat and Hoëdic competing against Thomas Coville’s Sodebo Ultim’. The pair are starting to get used to fighting duels, as they already battled it out against each other at the Nice UltiMed last May.
In winds that remained light or were absent in the last few miles, Sodebo Ultim’ was the first to cross the line, finishing just three minutes before Joyon and his boys.
This is a gentle way to ease back into racing, but it woke up Francis’s competitive spirit with less than 70 days to go to the start of the Route du Rhum, destination Guadeloupe.
