Spring is just around the corner and the trimaran rental season is being actively prepared in La Rochelle. The boats come out of the shipyard all beautiful, all new, they are launched and once they have been thoroughly checked, they set sail each in turn from La Rochelle in the direction of their various charter bases in the Mediterranean : Croatia, Corsica and the French Riviera.
On 25th February, the first NEEL 47 for the TRIMARAN YACHT CHARTER fleet cast off the ropes from the port of Les Minimes in La Rochelle, in the direction of Croatia. The crew, the skipper, Timothé Bruneel from Gosailing and 2 crew members, estimates that it will take 15 days to cover the 2,500 nautical miles that separate La Rochelle from Split in Croatia, if they are not blocked by bad weather in the meantime.
The 2nd NEEL 47 will follow within a few days, also heading for Croatia. It will be skippered by Jean-Baptiste Le Vaillant, a very experienced sailor of large racing multihulls and also used to the NEEL convoy.
