ROUTE DU RHUM 2022. After a delayed start due to weather conditions, the Route du Rhum left Saint-Malo on Wednesday 9 November. The arrival of the 138 skippers is scheduled for next week in Guadeloupe.

[Mis à jour le 11 novembre 2022 à 17h26] It has now been two days since the 138 skippers in six categories have entered the Route du Rhum. The big start was indeed given this Wednesday, November 9 from Saint-Malo in Brittany. A 2022 edition whose course presents many difficulties for the participants. Indeed, they have to sail on a part of the English Channel which can be dangerous, due to intense maritime traffic. The sailors then cross the Bay of Biscay, where depressions and trade winds can be very strong, then the Sargassum, before finally arriving in Guadeloupe. But before setting foot on the archipelago, the skippers must go around it, which could be difficult, especially to round the Basse-Terre buoy located near the Guadeloupe coast.

After the first hours of racing marked by numerous damages and retirements, a collision took place on the night of Thursday 10 to Friday 11 November. Damien Seguin’s Imoca monohull (Apicil group) suffered an impact with a freighter around 5 a.m., according to information reported by franceinfo. The accident caused the dismasting of his ship. According to the organizers, Damien Seguin “is currently trying to clear the mast and has set up flash lights to be spotted”. The organizers specify that the skipper is not injured.

The four-hour penalty imposed on skipper Charles Caudrelier (Maxi Edmond de Rothschild) has also been lifted. It had initially been imposed on him for early departure, according to franceinfo. Thursday evening, the former pole vaulter Jean Galfione (Serenis Consulting), who evolves in Class40, had to stop over in Brest after experiencing problems with his mainsail, as well as water ingress into his ship. Information reported by West France. Find below the ranking in the six categories, as well as an interactive map to follow the progress of your favorite skippers.
