11th Hour Racing Team slips lines tomorrow from the Bassin Paul Vatine in Le Havre, France for the start of the 2019 Transat Jacques Vabre. Charlie will be joined by co-skipper Pascal Bidégorry for the race to Salvador de Bahia. Pascal has a long history with the race - this will be his seventh time competing in the TJV, finishing first in 2005 and 2015.
We'll see a potential split in the fleet early on. The teams must make a decision when exiting the English Channel to turn south, taking a more easterly course, or head west before turning towards Brazil. Get ready to be glued to the race tracker!
The start of the TJV will stream live from the event website on Sunday, October 27, starting at 13h15 CEST/ 7h15 EST. Be sure to follow us on social for all the behind the scenes action - Instagram, Facebook, YouTube,
