More than 180 engineers from six Safran companies were involved in every stage of the 60 ft construction, contributing their expertise in a range of areas including composite materials, modeling, hydraulics and of course onboard electronics.
Skipper’s point of view, Marc Guillemot :
“ The real difference between Safran and its main competitors is that my sponsor plays a driving role in the ongoing development of the boat. Usually it is the skipper who does that,
but in my case I have been given every encouragement to optimize my boat by the Safran sailing team. And I benefit from a number of significant technology transfers from Safran.”
