Quentin Vlamynck and his crew proved to be incisive, devilishly efficient and ultra-regular in every episode of the Pro Sailing Tour 2022. Winner of episodes 1 (Bonifacio) and 3 (Bay of Saint-Brieuc), Arkema won the Final this Saturday Morning rush between Cowes and Roscoff, after a very close match with Leyton and Koesio, who crossed the finish line 18 seconds apart! The Ocean Fifty circuit this year demonstrated a level of play of rare intensity with the best European sailors, all sailing disciplines combined.

Sam Goodchild at Leyton put his title back on the line this year, he who had largely dominated the debates on the 2021 Pro Sailing Tour by winning 4 out of 4 episodes. For this second season, it was necessary to have perfectly accomplished boats and even more seasoned, with the knife between his teeth, determined to take revenge: Erwan Le Roux and his Koesio (the most recent Ocean Fifty of the fleet), Thibaut Vauchel-Camus in Solidaires En Peloton-ARSEP, Eric Péron with Komilfo (newcomer to the class), Quentin Vlamynck aboard Arkema, Gilles Lamiré and his GCA-1001 Sourires Group and Sébastien Rogues in Primonial. On board, the flower and cream of the sailors who have come to contribute their experience and fight on all kinds of routes: Vincent Riou (winner of the Vendée Globe 2008),

From Bonifacio to Roscoff, great battles in the inshore and the 24h Challenge

The 7 crews met in Bonifacio on May 12 to kick off season 2 of the Pro Sailing Tour. A warm welcome at the main quay of the medieval town, regattas in a dream setting in front of limestone cliffs, the 24-hour Challenge along the south of Corsica… episode 1 of the 2022 circuit saw immediately the crew of ‘Arkema get the overall victory ahead of Leyton and Koesio. A good warm-up in the sun before moving on to June 22, twenty days of non-stop racing between Brest, Saint-Brieuc Bay, Cowes and the finish line at Roscoff. Leyton, captained by Morgan Lagravière during the Brest episode, easily dominated the proceedings by winning 4 out of 6 inshore and the 24h Challenge in Finistère. Enough to put pressure on the competition when it comes time to continue episode 3 of the Pro Sailing Tour in Saint-Quay-Portrieux. Saint-Brieuc Bay was successful for the Médoc crew with 4 wins out of 6, Arkema taking episode 3 despite a second place in the Offshore Challenge to Cowes won by Leyton. At the time of the Final Rush towards Roscoff, the final victory was not decided: 1 point separated Arkema from Leyton.
