The More Miles Less Plastic initiative returns at the transatlantic racing with Ambrogio Beccaria, ocean sailor and One Ocean Foundation ambassador. After the success achieved a year ago at the Route du Rhum, the Foundation and Ambrogio Beccaria newly activated the More Miles Less Plastic environmental initiative for the Transat Jacques Vabre, a double regatta departing from Le Havre and arriving in Fort de France, in Martinique.
Ambrogio Beccaria with his “Alla Grande -Pirelli”, together with co-skipper Nicolas Andrieu, is currently in command of the Class 40 with an hour and 15 minutes advantage over the second. The regatta started on Sunday 29 October but, due to the storm Ciaran which hit the Atlantic coasts and beyond, the organization had communicated a change of route, foreseeing a sort of mandatory pit stop in Lorient, on the Breton coast. The arrival in Martinique is approximately scheduled for November 22nd after 3750 nautical miles of the theoretical route which are added to the over 300 already travelled.
