This Friday, November 25 10:19:16UTC Axel Tréhin on Project Rescue Ocean crossed the finish line in Pointe-à-Pitre in tenth position in Class40 on the 12th Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe . His race time is 16 days 09 hours 01 minutes 16 seconds.


"It's nice to see people here, this was quite exceptional, so I don't know if I'll have the chance to relive it. It's a childhood dream come true, one hell of an adventure. We spent some time preparing to go racing. Every day we face things that were not planned for so we have to adapt. Sometimes it's small details, sometimes it's big details. I'm here thanks to a great team and Mathieu Perraut, (Inter Invest, who gave him his mast in Punta Delgada NDRL). In Class40, we feel like family: when one of us is in trouble and another can help him, he does, the question does not arise. What happened in the Azores was brilliant, super beautiful.”
