Sailing sponsorship: 2017, the year of the Arkema 3 Mini 6.50!
An unusual prototype
Arkema 3 is a concentrate of innovations like no other sailboat in its category before. First of all with its construction process involving the use of Elium®, the first liquid thermoplastic resin allowing the manufacture of recyclable composite parts.
This monohull is also notable by its many technical and architectural innovations: rounded stem, tilting foils, canting keel, wing mast, adjustable forestay, retractable bowsprit, etc.
Getting ready for the competition!
In April Quentin and Arkema 3 will start the 2017 season in the Lorient BSM, a double-handed race he will compete in with Lalou Roucayrol. For the next competitions, Quentin will go it alone and will validate his qualification for the Mini-Transat by completing the Pornichet Select 6.50, the Mini in May and the Trophée MAP. "The ultimate objective is this solo transatlantic race and I want to do well. If I manage to complete, the boat will leave its mark on the history of the Mini!" explains Quentin Vlamynck.
