After having successfully completed the Barcelona World Race double handed around the world sailing race, Nandor Fa is preparing his Imoca 60 ocean racing boat the Spirit of Hungary for one of the World’s most popular trans-oceanic sailing races: the Transat Jacques Vabre 2015, that starts this autumn from Le Havre (France). His entry to the race was confirmed along with birthday wishes from the organizers.
In the double-handed trans-atlantic race the Hungarian skipper, who had completed four around the world races so far, will be accompanied by Péter Perényi, who is at the same time the electrician of Nandor’s new carbon boat.
The preparations for the Le Havre (Fr) – Itajai (Bra) race are to be completed by august, and Nandor plans to start their new training program in September including the delivery from Barcelona to Le Havre.
