Route du Rhum 2014: Peyron swaps Vintage 'Happy' Tri project for BP

Images Sent by Christophe Launay: "Loick Peyron replacement skipper of Armel Le Cléac'h (he has to stand down from the Route du Rhum following a injury to his right hand) for "La Route du Rhum" on the Maxi Trimaran Solo Banque Populaire VII."

Bad luck for Armel, and a standby for Loick's old style navigation project with 'Happy', I contacted Fred Eagle to confirm the news, and surely the yellow Tri will see action in future. Read about this project at LP Interview we did some months ago.

Loick will race against the former BPV , Tri  he sailed for the Round the World navigation and now in hands of Dona Bertarelli & Spindrift team. Yann Guichard will race solo the giant BPV, that was modified for this race in mind.
