A challenging course
For the Panerai Transat Classique 2015, the Atlantic Yacht Club and its partner Comet Organisation have put together a brand new course to bring out the best in the yachts and their crews, especially the navigators who'll get ample chance to demonstrate their strategic skills. When they set out on 7 January from the island of Lanzarote, these graceful ladies of the sea will have to face 3,000 nautical miles of ocean until they tie up in Fort-de-France Harbour, Martinique. Their immediate priority will be to pick up the trade winds as quickly as they can, but first they will have to navigate their way out of the labyrinthine archipelago of the Canary Islands. After a long stretch under spinnaker and trying to dodge the dead zones, the crews will then have to negotiate the long arc of islands that make up the Lesser Antilles. With such an exacting course, only the most accomplished crews can expect a place on the podium.
Experienced organizers and prestigious partners
An exceptional event such as the Panerai Transat Classique 2015 is founded on the enthusiasm and the commitment of those taking part, the exemplary determination of the organizers, and the precious support of quality sponsors. Drawing on the experience and professionalism of Comet Organisation, the Atlantic Yacht Club has been the driving force behind some of the finest offshore events for classic sailing vessels and the Panerai Transat Classique 2015 is no exception. When it comes to promoting an image of excellence that is recognizable throughout the world, what better sponsor than Panerai? For more than a decade the prestigious Italian watchmaking company has been heavily involved in classic yacht racing in the Mediterranean and, on the other side of the Atlantic, in the Caribbean and on the east coast of the USA.
