As a pre-taste of Rhum :
3 days of challenge for the skippers to compare their own performance during speed tests.
The boats will sail from the port daily, around noon, and will be back at their pontoons end of the afternoon. They will be moored at the Carnot and Aiguillon quays for exhibition to the public.

Presentation will be made by Vincent Balard, who will detail the history, race results of each skippers and their boats.

After the prize ceremony on Sunday, the Route du Rhum race competitors will start their qualification journey for the 2014 edition, over 1000 nautical miles, single handed, following the same route, and therefore with a common follow up by a control center located at shore.

History of the maritime patrimony
The GOLDEN OLDIES MULTIHULLS association, founded in 2007, is a unique association gathering amateurs and professionals in sailing: architects, builders, equipment suppliers, owners and skippers,  sharing the same fever : passion for multihulls and maintaining legendary boats alive.

Their aim is to share their passion with the public: to remind their youth for some, to make others know the history of the first multihulls boats designed by pioneer architects who wrote the open sea race history for the seventies and the eighties.

An exhibition by the famous Christian Février photographer, a privileged witness of this time, will be open to the public from Friday, August 8 to Sunday August 10 at the Concarneau Pôle Nautique, quai de la Croix.
