Brest Atlantic

In last month’s episode we left the four huge Ultim trimarans competing in the Brest Atlantiques mid-course race – this month we tell you the full story. Skippered by some of the biggest names in world sailing, the race takes two-man crews from the French west coast to Brazil, then on to Cape Town and on to the finish in Brest. Find out who did and who didn’t.
