    Teamet han åker med är amatörerna som tidigare framgångsrikt kört A-35 och A-40 “Paprec Recyclage” i alla de stora IRC-racen i Frankrike och Storbritanien. Sjysst uppgradering!

    Jean-Luc Petithuguenin’s Paprec Recyclage Brittany based crew are mainly amateurs skippered by sailmaker Stephan Neve of Incidences Voiles. The owner is a very well known sailing enthusiast who is founder and chairman of Paprec who also support IMOCA Open 60 skipper Jean-Pierre Dick. Petithuguenin raced for the French team at the final Admiral’s Cup in 2003 and then was part of the winning Commodore’s Cup team in 2004 with Neve on the Sinergia 40 of the same name. Before buying the TP52 they successfully raced an A40RC under IRC.

    “At the moment we are just hoping to race correctly and race well. Compared with all the other teams we will be at a different level I’m sure. All of the team are amateurs with jobs, we have physical education teacher, a doctor, a builder…we really are a group of friends who have been together for a long time.” Explains Neve, “But we really want to be there for the experience to learn from these other teams as much as we can.”

    “The crew will really only have sailed together for between 10 and 15 days before we start in Palma, and so we can’t expect too much. But we are coming to learn.”
