  • Maxi Edmond de Rothschild's Record Run

    Two years ago, just a few months after their arrival in the midst of the Gitana Team, Charles Caudrelier and Franck Cammas, together with their four crew, treated themselves to their first major victory by winning the Rolex Fastnet Race. The six sailors also made their mark in the event by setting a new course record of 1 day 4 hours and a few minutes… The last winners of the 100% English edition – when the finish was decided in Plymouth – yesterday evening at 20:25 UTC, they became the first team to add their names to the winners list in a ‘Fastnet’ rounding off in French waters off Cherbourg-en-Cotentin. After 1 day 9 hours 15 mins and 54 seconds of racing where they ruled supreme and crossed the finish with a lead of more than 10 hours ahead of their closest rival, the men of Gitana Team take their second consecutive victory in this prestigious Anglo-Saxon race.

    A clean start for the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild in the 49th edition of the Rolex Fastnet Race, which is defending its title in the prestigious English race. A few minutes before setting sail, Franck Cammas, one of the skippers of Gitana 17, and Morgan Lagravière, helm trimmer, shared with us Gitana Team’s ambition for this inaugural race of the 2021 season.
