Christening of the MOD70 Foncia in turquoise waters…

Baptême MOD70 Foncia 05.10.11
For his major comeback to the helm of an oceanic multihull, Michel Desjoyeaux gathered together his nearest and dearest this Tuesday 4 October, along with the members of his team and colleagues from the FONCIA group, in a truly dream setting to christen the boat!

On the island of Saint-Nicolas in the Glénan archipelago, all the guests were able to witness the arrival of the MOD70 under sail. On time and in all her finery, the one-design trimaran Foncia put on a real show, right up to the minute she ran up onto the beach to take part in a private ceremony in the presence of her patron, Audrey Tautou.

Michel Desjoyeaux, skipper of the MOD70 FONCIA: “A christening is a maritime transition which we’re trying to carry on. Before we head off for some more official competition meetings, it was important to seal the moment. Audrey came to see us a few days before the start of the Barcelona World Race. The whole team found in her someone completely enthralled by the sea and boats and I knew she would enjoy being the patron! As to the Glénan islands, these are my little paradise…”
