Marsh, 20th 2019 – Rodolphe Sepho supports the ABC
Rodolphe Sepho was one of the great leaders of the last Route du Rhum.The Guadeloupe Islands are proud to count among all the sailors from the nautical sector of the Region such an ambassador, dynamic, always optimistic.The Atlantic Back Cruising Region Guadeloupe rally is very honored with the sponsorship of Rodolphe Sepho.The contacts beetween sailing competitors and Blue Saillig sailors is very natural because sailors, whoever they are, whether they sail for the victory or the pleasure all have a common horizon and especially the same values,these values of solidarity so well attached to people of the sea. Thank you Rodolphe for this trust and support given to the participants of an Ocean Rally that leaves from your home, the wonderful islands of Guadeloupe.

Leaving Hyères early July 2017 with Marjolaine, my wife, OCANA after a few stops in the Balearic Islands, Spain, Gibraltar, Morocco arrived in the Canaries for a prolonged stopover of a year
We returned early July 2018 to enjoy a little more of the Canary Islands and to join Mindelo Cape Verde we leave late August to return to France
On November 1 I leave alone in Cape Verde to prepare OCANA for the transat solo I realized from November 14 to 28 I had inquired to register in one of the rallies for this transat go but my browser statuslonely forbade me access …
The return transatlant being planned with my son Antoine we opted for a safer and more user-friendly formula by registering for the Atlantic Back Cruising 2019 to complete this tour of the Atlantic with a return to Hyères …
