Sports watch brand Briston is supporting the upcoming la Transat AG2R La Mondiale 2021 ocean race, partnering with this year’s Figaro Bénéteau 3 racing boat.
The Transat AG2R La Mondiale is the only double-handed transat where sailors compete in identical one-design boats. The 3,870 mile open ocean race begins May 9 2021, sailing from Concarneau on the French Brittany coast, finishing in Saint Barts in the West Indies.
The Figaro Bénéteau 3 is the successor to the long serving Figaro Bénéteau 2, faster and better equipped. Sailors expect to face extreme conditions in this endurance challenge.
To mark the sponsorship, competitors-to-watch skippers Nicolas Bertho and Romuald Poirat will be wearing Briston Clubmaster Diver Pro diving watches.
