MaxSea is glad to support the second edition of La Solidaire du Chocolat 2012, a transatlantic race between France and Mexico. Starting on March 11th from the French port of Saint Nazaire and ending 26 days later at the fishing port of Progreso, in the Yucatán Peninsula (by April 6th).
The race, exclusively conceived for Class40 boats, will be preceded by a music festival in Nantes from 1st to 3rd March and other cultural activities like a big parade on the Loire River between Nantes and Saint Nazaire.
After 9.260 km, the sailors expect overseas a colorful and warmful welcoming committee in the Mayan territory, with traditional dances and music to celebrate the accomplishment of this transatlantic race that helped raise 500.000 euros in its first edition.
MaxSea thanks the organization of La Solidaire du Chocolat for letting us participate to this great solidarity event in support of the people of Yucatán once again.
