French Champion 2023

The French multihull championship F16 C1 2023 took place on the lake of Maubuisson, in the southwest of France, from April 8 to 10. 14 boats were competing and after three beautiful days of sailing, it is the brand new Befoil F16 CARBON with Emmanuel Le Chapelier and Eric Le Bouëdec on board that obtains its first overall victory.

Throughout the French Championship, the races followed each other in a wind that varied in strength and direction. The Befoil 16 CARBON quickly broke away from the other boats and the catamaran and its crew won 4 races, each with a comfortable lead.

Winner of the Raid Des Oiseaux 2023

The Befoil F16 CARBON then participated on April 16th to the “Raid des Oiseaux Nemea” organized on the Arcachon bay, on French Atlantic coast. The tour of the “île aux Oiseaux” (Birds Island)saw the boat finishing in real time in front of the F18 of type Goodall Akurra and Nacra MKIII. The Befoil 16 CARBON won by being the smallest boat of the competitors with top speed over 20 knots.

Eurocat 2023

The weekend of May 1st saw Befoil F16 CARBON  winning the National F16 of the” Eurocat” in Carnac (Brittany, France) also winning the offshore  Raid in her category

With all the races taken into consideration, it was critical to be fast around 3 buoys as well as for the long-distance offshore raid. The Racing Team had a great regatta winning races as well as the Eurocat raid. During the raid, the Befoil F16 CARBON quickly brokeaway from the other F16s and finished in contact with the first F18. The conditions were perfect, sunny and windy, and the Carnac Yacht Club organized this edition of the race in a masterful way.

The first Befoil 16 CARBON will be ready for delivery from the shipyard in Lorient in the coming weeks. Currently, test sessions of the Befoil 16 CARBON are organized in Lorient, Brittany (France) and in Geneva, Switzerland, for May and June.
