Corsair, Official Partner of the OC Sport Pen Duick transatlantic races



Corsair is pleased to announce its commitment as Partner and Official Air Carrier of OC Sport Pen Duick on its major transatlantic races to the West Indies: the Double Transat - Concarneau - Saint-Barthélemy, a major race on the Figaro circuit, as well as the legendary Route du Rhum - Destination Guadeloupe.


The French airline is involved in the Double Transat – Concarneau – Saint-Barthélemy, which will start on May 9 in Concarneau, Brittany. In 14 editions since 1992, this great transatlantic race, pillar of the French Elite Offshore Racing Championship, has revealed the biggest names in sailing, from Jean Le Cam to Armel Le Cleac'h. This year, it will once again pit around thirty sailors against each other in a double-handed and evenly matched event of 3,890 miles towards Saint-Barthélemy.

A strategic project that Corsair wanted to build over the long term, despite the complex health context: the company will thus continue its commitment to the Route du Rhum - Destination Guadeloupe, a legendary multi-class transatlantic cruise whose next departure will be in the fall of 2022 A complete partnership on one of the most emblematic races in ocean sailing which will permanently associate it with OC Sport Pen Duick and the Guadeloupe region, the exclusive major partner of the event.

Pascal de Izaguirre, Chairman and CEO of Corsair: “The partnership on two major transatlantic races to the Caribbean strengthens our anchoring in overseas territories. We are very proud to be alongside the Guadeloupe region in order to ensure our mission as official carrier and participate in the success of these two offshore racing events which share common values with those which drive our teams on a daily basis: passion, commitment and professionalism. »

Joseph Bizard, General Director OC Sport Pen Duick: “This partnership, essential to the organization of our events, will be at the heart of our future event plans. It also seals an eminently symbolic agreement as a link between two territories that Corsair and our great transatlantic races have the privilege of promoting. We are very proud to welcome Corsair to our side. »

Privileged conditions As part of this partnership, Corsair will offer specific advantages and pricing conditions to shipowners, skippers and their families, as well as to the boats' technical teams, race partners and the media.* Corsair will set up a dedicated team, available to help teams organize their travel.

TGV + Plane + Shuttle Thanks to its association with TGV InOui, Corsair also connects the province to all of its destinations. Its partnership with Air Antilles allows it to offer numerous destinations in the Antilles.

The “Train + Air” offer allows you to make a single purchase for an entire trip by offering TGV transportation, a shuttle service to the airport and a Corsair flight. It then becomes simpler and more practical to travel: a single contact, a single reservation, a single ticket and a single price. Direct access to all destinations from the center of 18 cities in France guarantees a greater choice of departure cities. And in the event of a delay, Corsair and SNCF undertake to reroute its passengers free of charge from the earliest possible departure, covering a hotel night if necessary.

* Special rates subject to availability at the time of booking. For any departure outside the periods indicated, the public rate in force will be applied.
