More than 98,000 skippers took part from the start of the Transat Jacques Vabre on the 30th October. And thanks to the audacity of the Many Players team the two best skippers of the virtual prologue were able to compete in real prologue against the real Transat skippers.

It was the first time in history that sport has met virtual sport in this way and congratulations must be given to the virtual skippers as they exceeded all expectations, even leading during the initial stages of the regatta.
