Heading the fleet this afternoon offshore of the Pointe du Talud for the 48 Heures Azimut, Damien Seguin (Groupe Apicil) was soon being hounded by the pack of new IMOCAs led by reigning champion Charal.

The utmost composure and an element of luck was required to take the win in this 48-hour Azimut. Still anyone's game right to the wire, race victory for the second consecutive year finally went to Jérémie Beyou (Charal), an opportunist hunter who managed to latch onto just enough air at Ile de Groix to carry him over the line.

The Défi Azimut will primarily be about enabling me to continue getting to know my boat, validating it and drawing up a small jobs list if need be. I'm going to have some fun, but I know what I'm like, I'm competitive so I won't be able to stop myself from doing the best I can." www.defi-azimut.net/en

The Défi Azimut is a competition born in the heart of the Lorient Sailing Valley (based in Brittany, France), the cradle of offshore racing and technology, and "a breeding ground for skills", as Jean-Marie Corteville, creator of the Défi Azimut and President of Azimut, points out.
For the organizers of the Défi Azimut their mission is accomplished. And everyone is looking forward to next year when it will be a few weeks before the Route du Rhum 2022. "We will keep the same formula which is perfect," emphasizes Jean-Marie Corteville. "We will undoubtedly see the 48H Azimut get tougher with more entries.
Now in its 10th year and sponsored by Azimut, the Brittany-based digital solutions company, the Défi Azimut has become an established annual treat for fans of the most exciting monohull racing yachts in world sailing.

"The Azimut Challenge is a nice test, I'm very happy to participate," he said. "It's clear that in these very short phases of the regatta, you have to get into it right away, whereas I'm a good stayer! But it's also a good opportunity to do some starts and tactics. It's an excellent warm-up and a great show for the public and partners.

The Défi Azimut has grown in stature over recent years, transitioning from what once was a friendly gathering before the big races of each Autumn, to become what is now a proper sporting test of sailors and their machines, a bite-sized, short sharp set of races which this year included a tough 48-hour offshore race.
