    I reopen such thread as the Ultims are back on water to prepare the 2021 races which will culminate with the Jacques Vabre in early November, 7500 NM for the Ultims race :

    Banque Populaire XI just launched, Armel Le Cléac'h and Kevin Escoffier
    Actual (ex Macif) , Jean-Yves Le Blevec and X .. : it is the ex Macif of Francois Gabart, see the video (the whistle is the real noise on board, not very pleasant !)

    Francois Gabart at last got a new sponsor , SVR Lazartigue (cosmetic products), which bought to Macif the new ultim trimaran foiler in finishing (launch expected for July) and committed for a 4 years programme. The ultim should be ready enough to participate for the Jacques Vabre in November. Budget is said ~ 12 M€ Investment + 2,5 M€/year for functioning.
