Appelée maintenant The Transat CIC 2024, la course « anglaise » en solitaire célèbre ses 60 ans

28 mars 2024

Appelée autrefois OSTAR, puis La Transat Anglaise, cette course à la voile en solitaire a maintenant pour nom The Transat CIC. D’ailleurs, l’histoire de la course au large s’écrit depuis 1960 à travers cette grande classique. TheTransat CIC partira le 28 avril du port de Lorient, en France, en direction de New-York sur un parcours exigeant de 3 500 milles en Atlantique Nord. Cette 15e édition sera aussi l’occasion de célébrer comme il se doit les 60 ans de la victoire d’Eric Tabarly sur son Pen-Duick II.

La Transat CIC est ouverte aux Classes IMOCA (33 inscrits), elle compte comme  qualification pour le Vendée Globe 2024, et aux Class40 (13 inscrits). On retrouve également des catégories « Vintage monocoques et multicoques » et voiliers cargos. Cette dernière catégorie, « Exhibition de voiliers cargos », sera non officielle, ces bateaux ne pouvant être menés en solitaire. L’on peut penser toutefois à l’exception si l’on réfère à Alain Colas, qui a mené seul son immense Club Med de 72 mètres lors de l’édition 1976.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.
