Yoann Richomme wins the Route du Rhum Class 40!
It has been more than two weeks since French skipper Yoann Richomme left the harbor of Saint-Malo, France, with destination Guadeloupe. His objective was clear from the start: to win the famous Transatlantic solo sailing race “Route du Rhum 2018”. During the first week very strong winds and high waves made it a tough deal for all sailors. Yoann could build a lead and kept it until the end! Not without a challenging sportive fight with his main competitors who never gave up trying to take over the first position.
Tuesday 20 November, 16 days, 3hours, 22minutes and 44 seconds after leaving the Saint-Malo harbor in France, Yoann crossed the finish in Point-à-Pitre, the capital of Guadeloupe. It is inspiring to see how Yoann showed continuous confidence in his objective, his boat, his material, his abilities and his team. Always focused and with a great positive spirit. We are proud to share a common philosophy that leads to performance: speed, agility and perseverance.
Congratulations from the whole DOMO Chemicals Team, Yoann!
