PCP will become famous soon enough
Sam Manuard

And since G posted Manuard on the shipyard making boats, I will post one of Manuard racing in one of his boats and getting a remarkably good result on the biggest French Transat, the Route du Rhum (2010).

He arrived 4th on its 40class boat competing against more than 40 other class40 skipped by some of the best French solo sailors. That time he beat Riechers that come in 6th place on a Owen Clarke Design.

Now Riechers on a Sam Manuard boat is the man to beat

As a sailor he is a complete and multi talented one. One year later he won the transat Jaques Fabre (Transat) on the Multi 50class (with le Blevec).
