Start of the Transat Jacques Vabre 2013 today at 13.00 pm for all classes

During the skippers briefing yesterday afternoon, the race director announced the official start of the 11th edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre for Thursday November 7, for all classes participating in this double-handed transatlantic race : Class40, Multi50, IMOCA and MOD70.

At 13.00 pm exactly, the 44 boats will cross the starting line and will have to leave a first buoy on the port board prior to heading to Itajai in Brazil.

Because of a strong depression announced in the night from Saturday to Sunday, the race has made arrangements for a possible stopover in Roscoff for Class 40 and even maybe for the Multi 50.
