It was the expected moment of this first day The rum journey in Saint Malo. Lock passage for Ultims and Ocean Fifty, Tuesday 25 October 2022.

A real feat for the first cities, whose width of 23 meters is close to the width of the locks (25 meters).

And for the first time, grandstands (which can hold a thousand people) were installed to enjoy the show.

Back to the pictures of this La Route du Rhum highlight:
