Cora – Moustache Solidaire
Succeeding Valentin Lemarchand (2014) and Arthur Hubert (2015), young sailor Jules Bonnier has been selected to lead Class40 Cora – Moustache Solidaire in the upcoming Québec St-Malo race. With many Atlantic crossing under his belt, Jules will be supported by a crew of 4 with diverse experiences: Valentin Lemarchand (Route du Rhum 2014), Thibault Hector (Transat Jacques Vabre 2015), Morgan Launay and Christophe Backman. A first transatlantic race for this young crew : « We complement each other really well » says Jules, « our trip from Guadeloupe to Québec has strengthened our cohesion ». The crew is now looking forward to discover Québec City and to set sail on the Saint-Lawrence River to reach it’s hometown of St-Malo: « We want to make this race as fun as possible. We are born competitors ! With boats from different generations, there will be a race within the race. We would be happy and proud to leave some boats behind …. » Driven by ambition, the youngest of the float intend to prove that they are no bit players!
