Crossing the Atlantic alone as a training exercise - Zenith
This week, the skipper of Spindrift 2 will begin his preparations for the Route du Rhum by bringing the maxi trimaran to France on his own. An ideal warm-up! Spindrift 2 will leave Newport on August 19th and head for La Trinité-sur-Mer, where the boat is usually moored. “This transatlantic crossing from Newport will enable me to get into full Route du Rhum mode,” explains Yann. “When onboard with the crew, it’s like being an orchestra conductor, but for the Route du Rhum I will be alone on stage. I will be up against the leaders of single-handed sailing, which is not really my speciality. That said, I have many other strengths, in particular extensive knowledge about sailing on multihulls.
