The Ariane’s Cup is a boat race gathering nearly 100 sailboats and close to 1000 crew members. The first race took place in 1979, now it is opened to companies involved in European spatial projects, in particular the Ariane program.
The Mercator Ocean/Copernicus Marine Service crew is currently taking part in the 27th edition of the Ariane’s Cup at Le Crouesty, France until September 24th. The crew includes Véronique, Coralie, Elodie, Julien, Clément -the skipper- and Henri who is also the developer behind SailGrib.
After 2 days of regatta, our crew is…#1 ex æquo of the competition! 2 more days to go before making history 😉
