SAILING INTO THE FUTURE. TOGETHER: SEE YOU IN 2024
After the Route du Rhum 2022, the project Sailing into the Future. Together lands again in the Caribbean, achieving yet another important sporting milestone within its three-year program, which will see IBSA and Alberto collaborate again in 2024.
Giorgio Pisani, Vice President IBSA Group and Project Leader of Sailing into the Future. Together, commented: “A place on the podium that shows the determination of our skipper Alberto Bona and his crewmate Pablo Santurde and repays the team for the enormous effort to get here after two seasons of intense work. This regatta is a perfect metaphor of the determination necessary to achieve the objectives set, at sea as well as in any other context. This month, we followed the Class40 IBSA, living with Bona all the difficult conditions he faced and skilfully overcame, and it was a great pleasure for IBSA’s entire welcoming team to hug him at the finish line in Fort-de-France, celebrating third place in one of the toughest regattas of the international Class40 circuit.
The Transat Jacques Vabre closed the second year of Sailing into the Future. Together on the sporting front and, once again, highlighted some of the distinctive features of IBSA’s: the ability to face challenges and adversities with courage and the will to reach the goal and to always go further, without stopping. These elements – combined with the talent of the skipper, the innovation and technology of the Class40 IBSA, as well as the competence of a great team – turned this competition into a successful experience... a dream that took our breath away and kept a vast audience of ocean sailing enthusiasts (and many others) glued to their screens.
