Setting sail around the world!

Adagio is proud to officially be sponsoring sailor Éric Péron during the brand new sporting event, the ARKEA ULTIM CHALLENGE – Brest.

This is the first solo non-stop race around the world aboard a maxi-trimaran.  Alone on his multihull for 40 to 50 days, Eric Péron will compete in extreme conditions.  Shared qualities and values, such as daring, performance and an appetite for surpassing one’s limits, have united Adagio and this explorer.

This will be ADAGIO’s first experience of ocean racing, so to have obtained their confidence is an immense privilege. Taking part in the first solo non-stop race around the world on a ULTIM is no mean feat. I know that I'll be supported by ADAGIO and their employees collectively.

Adagio embraces the core principles inherent in ocean racing: daring, ambition, team spirit, and sharing. We’ll celebrate these values when the race kicks off in Brest on 7 January. An opportunity for daring to take centre stage and team spirit to lead the way to memorable experiences.
