Video: Banque Populaire V trimaran trains off Cadix
Days go by and the long awaited window of opportunity seems to never come for the crew of the Banque Populaire V trimaran. Pascal Bidégorry and his crew still look forward to beating the Route de la Découverte record and take advantage of this long wait in order to further finetune their boat.
Given the absence of a suitable environment for the establishment of new record on the route from the Spanish port of Cadix-Puerto Sherry to San Salvador in the Bahamas archipelago, the Banque Populaire maxi trimaran went offshore for a few days last week. The French crew faced varied and testing conditions, as seen in the following video.
