Multi 50 skippered by veteran French yachtsman Roger Langevin enters OSTAR 2013!
Roger, a maritime pilot for 27 years and based in Le Havre, has sailed more than 100,000 miles in singlehanded events on both mono-hull and multi-hull boats.
Races include well-known and prestigious events – Transat Jacques Vabre, Transquadre Solo, Round Britain and Ireland, and Route du Rhum. Now President of Branec Oceanic Association which aims to promote offshore sail racing events, Roger manages a crewed 50’ multihull.
Roger’s boat, Inventaire de Branec IV, was built in 1990 by Seatec. Second in a series of three trimarans designed by Nigel Irens (The first, Notka, for Claude Develay the second, DUPON DURAN II, for Pascal Herold, and the third, CLM, for Hervé Cléris), Mike Birch and Halvard Mabire oversaw construction. With their extensive experience in the construction of offshore multihull sailboats, they have participated in making fast and strong trimarans.
