Key points:

– First transition day between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea
– All boats are being hauled out of the water in St Gilles
– They will go back in the water tomorrow in Rosas, Spain

With the Atlantic segment complete all 12 teams are hitting the road to drive boats and crewmembers to the next stopover in Rosas, Spain.

Rigs have been taken down and boats have been hauled out of the water and placed on their tows. Once packed, these 10.34m-long and 2.98m-wide monohulls are trucked to Rosas.

The drive is around 1000km long. It is a tiring experience for the sailors and the shore crews after three weeks of Tour, hence the professional truck drivers some of the teams are employing.

Racing will resume on Saturday July 20 in the Spanish port. Have a safe trip!

Interviews

Jean-François Bret, in charge of craning operations at the St Gilles marina:
“I’m used to sailing boats. It’s a three-step operation. First we take the mast down. Then the sailors work on the mast while I’m hauling the boat out of the water. Finally I put the mast back on the hull.”

Donatien Carme, Nantes St Nazaire E.Leclerc shore crew:
“We are doing this kind of thing several times a year. It’s a three-hour work from the rig to the tow. We are leaving with the boat in the afternoon to drive a first part and we will leave again after a good night of sleep. Everybody is tired after the Atlantic segment!”

Thierry Brosshart, Bienne Voile crewmember:
“A boat is not designed for being towed so we need to make sure it’s well fixed. We need to drive carefully because the boat and the cook’s truck are heavy. We will pay special attention to the roundabouts and crossing points… It’s all about sailing ashore with a boat!”
