Sam Davies prepares for her trans-Atlantic challenge

The 25 crews competing in the Figaro class’ biennial doublehanded Transatlantic AG2R “La Mondiale” were presented in Paris ahead of the race beginning at Concarneau on 18 April.

Amongst the competitors are Sam Davies and Romain Attanasio on Saveol and we are delighted to say Sam is kitted out in a MUSTO MPX Race Dry Smock and some of the new Active Base Layer tops and trousers plus a new Gore-Tex balaclava to replace the one she unfortunately lost least year.

Sam & Romain’s progress can be tracked at the official website transat.ag2rlamondiale.fr as they tear across the Atlantic toward the race’s finish in St Barts in the West Indies.

MUSTO’s range of MPX sailing gear is the perfect choice for offshore, race and pleasure sailors alike. It suits almost all conditions and utilises GORE-TEX® Pro Shell fabric to provide levels of durability and breathability you just can’t get in non GORE-TEX® products. It is only really superseded by the MUSTO HPX range which is the gear of choice for organisations such as the RNLI.

Hopefully the competitors will have a smooth journey across to the Caribbean and we look forward to tracking Saveol’s progress.
