09/11/2017 News Flash Sailing – Adventure – Ice zone in approach

Macif hopes to renew the Thomas Coville’s solo world tour record (49 days 3 hours 4 minutes and 28 seconds).
CLS experts work upstream of the skipper route to detect the most dangerous icebergs. CLS analysts are carefully watching the approaching ice zone. These observations are processed by radar satellite imagery.
The MACIF offshore racing teams told us the importance of this monitoring before departure. You can read that story here.
