Lorient: Launch of a giant of the seas

After over 135,000 man-hours, numerous meetings between Team Banque Populaire, the designers (naval architects VPLP), the number crunchers (HDS/Gsea Design), and the design office and teams from CDK and Keroman Technologies, the Maxi Banque Populaire IX was launched on 30 October in front of the Keroman Technologies yard in Lorient. The 32-metre Ultimate trimaran (a new generation of maxi multihulls designed for singlehanded racing) is making for her port of registry, Lorient La Base, before beginning a series of sea trials.

The Bridge race the winner : Macif

A third victory for Macif! (Fourth including the Armen Race in May 2017)

Having won the Transat Jacques Vabre (2015) double-handed with Pascal Bidegorry and The Transat (2016) singlehanded, François Gabart has now won The Bridge in crewed configuration!

Leading since the start, François and his crew left nothing to chance, getting the best possible potential out of their trimaran Macif. Indeed, they were able to make the most of her ease in the transition zones to contain their adversaries, and IDEC in particular, also at ease in these conditions, and Sodebo, right back in the game after a tough start to the race, but ultimately handicapped by a broken rudder after colliding with a UFO.

They were able to put pedal to the metal just when required, nicely balanced flying a hull… and in the end they crossed the line with a lead of over 125 miles in relation to their rivals.

CDK Technologies secures its 4th victory in 8 editions of the Vendée Globe thanks to Armel Le Cléac’h and BANQUE POPULAIRE!

Starting off its campaign in the ORMA class (construction of BANQUE POPULAIRE II in 2002), the collaboration between CDK Technologies and the BANQUE POPULAIRE team has been steadily reinforced over time. Indeed, all the team’s new boats that have been built since the maxi trimaran BANQUE POPULAIRE V have been undertaken by CDK Technologies. This long journey together has been all the more significant because it has evolved in unison with CDK Technologies. Indeed, construction of the Keroman Technologies site to enable the construction of BANQUE POPULAIRE V in Lorient ties in with the yard’s desire to support its clients in its most extreme challenges.

Vendée Globe 2016/2017

Alain Gautier in 1992/93,  Michel Desjoyeaux in 2008/2009, François Gabart in 2012/2013, all have one point in common: they chose CDK Technologies to build their boat. Thanks to them, CDK Technologies has also won the Vendée Globe…
