24-HOUR WORLD RECORD UNDER SAIL - Basile et Mathis Bourgnon

<p><strong>WORLD RECORD GOAL</strong></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/590727/Mathis_et_Basile-1556658467.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>We are two young cousins, sailors in blood and soul, accomplices both on water and on land. It&#39;s impossible for us not to go to sea! A new common desire for adventure and challenge.&nbsp;We share it with you so that you can bring it to life.</p> <p>Having grown up far from each other, Basil in the Pacific and Mathis on the Atlantic coast. We have finally each developed a similar sense of sailing: speed, pleasure and sharing!</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/592492/Record_M_diterann_e_entrainement__10_-1557248592.JPG" width="100%" /></p> <p>The catamaran, speed and offshore are familiar words. No wonder our next challenge brings them together: the 24 hours under sail!</p> <p>Think of it as the 24 hours of Le Mans of the sea. You have to be the fastest for 24 hours by wind force alone. No restrictions: FULL GAS!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/593008/Image1ENG-1557402972.png" width="100%" /></p> <p>We don&#39;t have a sponsor(s) yet but we have the boat and technical partners, the project is solid.&nbsp;Only the financial lack is blocking our way. If we call on you, it is because you can help us to achieve this record.</p> <p>Register with the WSSRC (World Speed Sailing Record Council) to formalize performance as a world record.&nbsp;That is the whole purpose of this campaign of crowdfunding.</p> <p>This collection is a real challenge. A kind of world record of the earth. An adventure that we will live together.</p> <p>It is an extraordinary period in the true sense of the word, intense and rich in emotions. Strangers and friends offer to help us and they help us. Some people use their relationships with the firm intention of finding us a sponsor, others work with us on the boat and share our challenge.</p> <p>We discovered the power of the word solidarity.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/593001/59798048_432103054190034_3716515774815272960_n-1557401480.jpg" width="100%" /><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/592996/Saison-bleue-1557401133.jpg" width="100%" /><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/592990/Montage_cata__9_-1557400547.JPG" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>THE CREW</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Mathis 21 years old</p> <p>-Record for crossing the Mediterranean Sea by catamaran</p> <p>-Channel crossing record by catamaran</p> <p>-2nd Grand Raid of the Eurocat 2018 in catamaran</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/592502/Record_M_diterann_e_d_part__6_-1557249477.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Basile 17 years old</p> <p>-French champion in Open 5.70</p> <p>-Tour Voile in Diam 24</p> <p>-Jacques Vabre 2019 in Class40</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/591120/53152824_770263920020113_4247339987042828288_n-1556808588.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>THE RECORD</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Official WSSRC</p> <p>Former record: 344 miles held by Yvan Bourgnon and Thibault Vauchel-Camus in 2012</p> <p>Stand bye: summer 2019</p> <p>We will be classified in the category: sport catamaran (max 20 feet)</p> <p>The start is made where we want, when we want.</p> <p>High probability of leaving Quiberon Bay, the boat is based in La Trinit&eacute; sur Mer. A NW&#39;ly wind between 15 and 20 knots would be the ideal conditions that would take us through the Bay of Biscay for an arrival towards the NW&#39;ly of Spain.</p> <p>Target performance: 360 miles at an average of 15 knots.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/594414/Record_M_diterann_e_entrainement__3_-1557844381.png" width="100%" /></p>

Allocation of funds

<p>This collection will be used to pay for registration with the WSSRC to formalize the world record.</p> <p>Registration for a world record costs 2050&euro; for an attempt.</p> <p>After the validated registration, the WSSRC sends us their little black box that we will have on the boat during the record and which will be sent back to them after the attempt. About a week later, the WSSRC will formalize the performance and communicate the distance covered.</p> <p>The remainder will be used to repay Kisskissbankbank&#39;s 8% commission and the money spent on the counterparties.<img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/589385/Budget-Kisskissbankbank__1_-1556190471.png" width="100%" /></p> <p>This is only a small part of the total budget, which amounts to around 25,000&euro; if the project is 100% achieved you continue to help us by continuing the donations.</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/592975/Budget-camember__1_-1557399982.png" width="100%" /></p>
