On this Sunday, May 30, 2021, the 12th edition of the CIC Nomandy Channel Race 2021 was launched;
22 boats out of 23 starters crossed the finish line of this 12th CIC Normandy Channel Race.
If at first glance this data seems anecdotal, it is in fact revealing a rather exceptional edition on several points. In addition to a scenario with multiple twists and turns and unsustainable suspense that has become the hallmark of this race, The varied weather, but always with a bearing bearing on almost the entire course and the overall timing favourable to level crossings are facts that are out of the standards of this great Norman classic.
Conditions that cumulated will have had two rare causes: the race route was completed in its entirety, only the 2nd time in 12 editions and a new record of the race in less than 5 days was established.
This assessment, the CIC Normandy Channel Race owes it above all to all these ingredients that it combines and that make it such a special event in the calendar of the Class40. A unique course, an international level, incredible sports scenarios, the Class40 spirit, … form a skillful mixture that attracts every year specialists in the discipline in the Channel and the Celtic Sea. Can’t wait for 2022!
