SOLO SAILORS – Vincent Beauvarlet is a French sailor. He started his career as a windsurfer and youth world champion in 1990. He discovered offshore sailing quickly participating in the Route du Rhum, Québec St Malo.
Today, three days before the start of La Route du Rhum, he goes on a long journey from Cancale (France close to St Malo, start of the Route du Rhum) to Guadeloupe (French caribbean island, arrival of the Route du Rhum and where he was born 40 years ago) alone onboard a very small multihull – a Multi 23 (VPLP Design ) called “Ocean Love Dream”.
He won’t go as fast as the big multihull Spindrift but Vincent’ll try to create a new record – to set the fastest Atlantic crossing alone onboard a dinghy multihull. It’s not a holiday, it’s an aventure. Vincent, take care !
