Athlete / Boat :
Alan Roura with La Fabrique
Transat Jacques Vabre
About the shot :
On November 5, 2017, departure of the Transat Jacques Vabre off Le Havre. Departure in tonic conditions. With 20 knots of wind and particularly choppy seas in the Bay of Seine. The sea is heavy under a north wind which raises pretty hollows. Which will make the shots quite sporty. The 37 competitors are heading towards the Etretat buoy. Suddenly the young Swiss Alan Roura's boat, “La Fabrique” appears, which literally explodes in a wave.
