Loïck Peyron will be in Pornichet on Thursday and Friday to compete with 30 Corsaires, led by Alexia Barrier in the Tour de Fance à la Voile 38th edition. The french sailing legend from La Baule will bring his multihull experience to the team for the coastal and stadium races.

Loïck Peyron has a long win list under his belt, but most of all, he has a real passion for multihull sailing. The Jules Verne Trophy holder and winner of 2014 Route du Rhum, who is also part of the Artemis campaign for the next America’s Cup, will join 30 Corsaires for two days in Pornichet, to do what he loves the most : sailing fast and fighting hard on the water.

« I am delighted to have the chance to sail with Alexia, Louis and Bill and find out about the Tour’s new racing format. I’ve been following the event on the Internet since the start and I think this new version of the race is very interesting. It’s a great idea from Yvan Griboval to have small and fast multihulls competing in short races, on a coastal course or in a stadium format, to make it a great show. The Diam 24 trimaran is the perfect boat for this. The line-up in fantastic, in terms of quality and quantity. We will try to play our cards right ».

The coastal course (start at 12.00 on Thursday) and the stadium racing (Friday from 11.30) will be set right near the beach in the Bay of La Baule, in front of the race Village, that is located boulevard des Océanides, à Pornichet.
