29th of May : The launchof the trimaran Idec Sport

Thursday, 25 May 2017



Francis Joyon and his team will launch th trimaran Idec Sport on Monday the 29th of May at 10 am in front of the Multiplast yard. This boat has seen many emotional launches since 2007 whilst accruing its extraordinary track record.

To go around the world in 40 days at an average speed of more than 26 knots, with certain days at more than 36 knots, is not painless. Over the last 2 months, the Multiplast teams, together with the Idec Sport shore team and crew have rallied round to repair the trimaran's cuts and bruises. This boat, the double holder of the Jules Verne Trophy and the Route du Rhum has accumulated more than 200,000 miles in the hands of the best skippers (Franck Cammas, Loick Peyron, Francis Joyon) and remains capable of clocking up top level races and records.

Proof (if there was need for it) of the constancy of Multiplast boats.

"The Bridge" for 4 multihulls which Multiplast knows well

On the 23rd of June, as part of the celebrations to mark the 100 year anniversary of the American troop's arrival to join the Allied fight in the 1st World War Macif, Sodebo, Actual and Idec Sport will take part in an unusual race between the maxi-trimarans and the liner Queen Mary 2.

This race between Saint-Nazaire and New-York, the first race which is 100% dedicated to "Ultim' trimarans", will host an encounter between 4 multihulls which are well-known to Mutliplast.

Macif, of which the central hull and the mainsheet track beam were built at Mutliplast en 2015, current holder of the solo 24 hours record.

Actual, a Multiplast yard regular, where this boat frequently undertakes its maintenance work.

Multiplast will be as close as possible tu the multihulls during this transatlantic crossing, as Dominique Dubois will leave the Paris Air Show a few days before its closure to embark on the Queen Mary from Saint-Nazaire.

The President of the Groupe Carboman will meet up on board with several hundred decision-makers, company heads, and economic players. On the programme : following the progress of the race, of course, but also a series of conferences and around tables on "man's place in tomorrow's business, innovation, or even diversification" to allow for networking and the creation of new relationships in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
