A World Championship registered on 3 official calendars

With three countries (France, Switzerland and Angola) and two continents (Europe and Africa) represented among the entries, the presence of an international jury during the six days of competition and national federal representatives, this Class40 World Championship is officially registered on three official calendars: that of Class40, the French Sailing Federation and World Sailing. The title of Class40 World Champion, which will be awarded on Saturday evening, June 18, will be worth its weight in gold and the winning team will be able to proudly display the success it has achieved with its crew over five days of close contact racing.

Sixteen registrants at D-14 and already a strong line-up

Fourteen days before the Class40 World Championship, 16 boats have already registered. Let's note the presence of well-known and recognized skippers, including many new boats, with :

- Antoine Carpentier (winner of the 2021 Transat Jacques Vabre in Class40) on Redman (FRA 161),

- Hervé Thomas on Blanc Bleu (FRA 149),

- Clara Fortin on Randstad - Ausy (FRA 155),
- Matthieu Perraut on Inter Invest (FRA 175),
- Amélie Grassi on La Boulangère Bio (FRA 170),
- Kéni Piperol on Captain Alternance (FRA 174),
- Franz Bouvet on Yoda (FRA 65),
- Marc Lepesqueux on Sensation Class40 Extrem (FRA 140),
- Valentin Gautier (Switzerland) on CER Offshore - Banque du Léman (SUI 159),
- Aurélien Ducroz on Crosscall (FRA 166),
- Jean-Baptiste Daramy on Chocolat Paries - Screb (FRA 123),

- Luke Berry on Lamotte on Module Création (future FRA 185),

A quality line-up that will allow us to see the capabilities of some of the boats recently launched before the big single-handed event of the Route du Rhum - Destination Guadeloupe. Interesting and always rewarding to add the title of World Champion of Class40 2022 to one's list of achievements!
