Final prep complete for the return to Europe

Fresh from an excellent third place on the RORC Caribbean 600 race and multiple training laps around the island of Antigua itself, the seven strong The Famous Project crew will leave Antigua on Tuesday 27th February for their first all-female ocean passage across the Atlantic, heading to Portimao, Portugal on their MOD70 The Famous Project Limosa.

As they build up towards their 2025 all-female challenge for the Jules Verne Trophy, when they will  sail the record holding Ultim IDEC Sport, this Transatlantic passage is an important stage in training up the team, strengthening cohesion and building skills over an extended period on the flighty, fast 70 foot trimaran which needs to be sailed ‘on the edge’ to achieve the best performance.

The seven strong team will be co-skippers Alexia Barrier (FRA) and Dee Caffari (GBR), Pam Lee (IRL), Joan Mulloy (IRL), Annie Lush (GBR), Annemieke Bes (NED) and Deborah Blair (GBR). Mediawoman is Muriel Vandenbempt.
