    BANQUE POPULAIRE REAFFIRMS ITS COMMITMENT TO SAILING UNTIL 2024 WITH AN AMBITIOUS PROGRAM
    In 2019, Banque Populaire will celebrate 30 years of sailing sponsorship. On the occasion of this anniversary, it reaffirms its commitment to this sport, with which it shares the values of courage and entrepreneurship, by developing an ambitious program that will lead it to the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris 2024, of which it is premium partner.

    A NEW ULTIM FOR ARMEL LE CLÉAC'H
    A few weeks after the accident of the Maxi Banque Populaire IX which led to its capsizing and its destruction during the Route du Rhum, the Sailing Bank renews its confidence in Armel Le Cléac'h and launches the construction of the Maxi Bank Popular XI, a new Ultim that should be launched in the winter of 2020/2021. More motivated than ever, the Skipper skipper of Banque Populaire will align with the races of the Ultim class program from the season 2021.



    This maxi-trimaran, the fourth built or developed by the Banque Populaire team, reflects the spirit of innovation and the search for performance that has always animated the Sailing Bank. This boat will be designed with the support of the architectural firm VPLP Design for the platform and GSea Design for the structure, in collaboration with the engineers of the design office of Team Banque Populaire. The construction will be entrusted to the two largest French shipyard specialist offshore racing: Multiplast and CDK Technologies, the latter providing full project management of the future Maxi Banque Populaire XI.
