...Francois Gabart: “It is great for us, the first race for the Trimaran MACIF and for us together and it’s her first win. We prepared it all well. It is an extraordinary boat and I love it already. And to share it with Pascal is great. It’s incredible.”

Pascal Bidégorry: “When you finish like that it is a great memory. I think Francois sails to an exceptional level. There is so many things to learn about the boat, so many things to do. But the Transat Jacques Vabre is always fabulous. The course is great. You share it all with someone which is important because it is complicated, it is difficult. There are little things to fix but to finish, after that start, it’s increadible. For me it is ten years since I won.
