Pascal Bidégorry and Banque Populaire go their separate ways

Banque Populaire issued a press statement today confirming the departure of their maxi-trimaran skipper:

After seven years of fruitful cooperation, Team Banque Populaire and Pascal Bidégorry cease their collaboration from today due to a disagreement on strategy ahead of the sports brand Banque Populaire in sailing.”

Banque Populaire tried to beat the Jules Verne Trophy record with their 40m maxi-trimaran in February, which unfortunately came to an abrupt end after they hit an unidentified object.

We’re surprised to hear that Bidégorry has departed and await further news on what happens next and the team’s plans.
