An experienced skipper in the Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe race, with three podium places to his credit and now his fourth participation just a few days away, Lalou Roucayrol has been preparing assiduously for this solo transatlantic event due to set off from Saint-Malo (France) on 4 November.
With the last preparations underway, Lalou Roucayrol will be presenting the other skippers with a “KIT A PARTIR”, a repair kit devised jointly with the Arkema Group.
For the past 5 years, Arkema has had a taste for ocean racing with its trimaran Multi50, which won the Transat Jacques Vabre race last November in particular. The exclusive partner of Lalou Roucayrol’s Lalou Multi team, Arkema shows off its colors on two distinct circuits, the Multi50 and the Mini 6.50 categories, thanks to innovative and high-performance boats built from materials developed from its own technologies. The Group has now decided to build a new Multi50 to be ready for launch in 2020 and with its sights set on the Route du Rhum 2022.
