The famous « Route du Rhum » race, from Saint Malo (Brittany, France) to Pointe-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe in the Caribbean), has started just a few days ago, on November 2nd.

For the second time since 2013, BW is sponsoring Bertrand De Broc‘s boat « Votre Nom Autour Du Monde » (Your Name Around The World). Unfortunately, due to an elbow injury, the Captain had no choice but to stop the race. Even if he really wanted to finish the race, his staff and his body made him realize that it was not an option.

We wish the Captain a very good recovery, and BW will keep supporting him on his next journey. Seeing his earlier successes, there is no doubt he will find success again in the future!

Before the race’s departure, more than 2 million people visited the marina! Indeed, this event is so popular that people from all around the world come to see the skippers and their boat. They saw the Captain’s boat equipped with BW bags and accessories, which represents a great visibility for our brand!
