Jules Verne Trophy

Transition day for Orange! Fighting against the capricious St. Helena high pressure system, the maxi-catamaran is now trying to catch a salutary north-westerly breeze, in order to optimise the trajectory towards a new adventure: the South.
"It's rather complex," explains Gilles Chiorri, boat captain. "The South is something one has to deserve. Metaphorically, I could say we just got on the merging lane. But there's road work ahead. So we have to slow down before hitting the actual Highway, which we'll hit around March 18."
