Transatlantic racing at its finest

Expect some exciting but elegant racing in the Panerai Transat Classique 2015 as some of the very finest sailing yachts compete for a place on the podium. 

In the first instalment of the series back in 2008, Gildas Rostain's Stiren, a magnificent Stephens design built in 1963, dominated the fleet of twenty-five classic sailboats as they raced from Agadir in Morocco to the Caribbean island of Saint Bart's. 

Four years later it was the turn of Pascal Stefani's White Dolphin to take first prize in the Transat Classique 2012. Built in 1967 by Italian shipbuilders Sangermani, White Dolphin cleaned up in real and corrected times on the warm-up leg from Saint-Tropez to Cascais and in the main event from Cascais across the Atlantic to Barbados.
