L’équipe de voile Realteam termine cinquième du dernier Act des Extreme Sailing Series qui s’est tenu à Florianópolis au Brésil, du 14 au 17 novembre. L’équipe s’est montrée brillante lors de la dernière journée de régates et termine la saison à la cinquième place du classement général.

Florianópolis, Brésil, le 18 novembre 2013 - Quatre jours de régates et 26 manches courues dans des conditions magnifiques ont clôturé la saison d’Extrême 40 à Florianópolis, au Brésil. L’équipe romande Realteam termine brillamment, avec deux victoires et deux secondes places lors de la dernière journée de compétition. Avec le genevois Arnaud Psarofaghis à la barre pour la première fois, Realteam a testé une nouvelle composition d’équipage performante. 'Nous avons eu besoin d’un peu de temps pour trouver nos marques avec ce nouvel équipage,' explique ce dernier. 'Nous avons dû débarquer Cédric Schmidt au milieu de la régate, car il s’est blessé au doigt après être tombé à l’eau, ce qui n’a pas aidé. En revanche, l’équipe s’est très bien adaptée à ma façon de barrer. Nous sommes extrêmement satisfaits de notre dernière journée, où tout nous a réussi!'

Pour sa première saison en Extrême 40, Realteam termine à la cinquième place du classement général. 'Toute l'équipe peut être fière de cette première saison,' confie le skipper Jérôme Clerc. 'Nous terminons juste derrière les équipages les plus expérimentés du circuit. Cette année de transition nous a permis de tester différentes configurations d'équipages, et nous connaissons désormais les axes de travail pour cet hiver. Nous allons recommencer nos entraînements début décembre, avec des objectifs ambitieux pour la saison prochaine!'

Le bilan est donc positif pour cette saison, qui a permis à l’équipe Realteam d’atteindre son objectif initial: mettre en place une écurie de voile professionnelle et performante. Un projet rendu possible grâce aux partenaires de Realteam, comme le souligne Jérôme Clerc: 'Je tiens a remercier tout particulièrement nos partenaires principaux, Esteban Garcia, de Realstone, et Philippe Rey-Gorrez, de TeamWork, qui permettent aux jeunes romands de l’équipe Realteam de régater au plus haut niveau international.'

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues.

She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
