Helming remains a key element in success aboard the Maxi Edmond de Rothschild. A top-flight exercise at very high speeds, steering the latest addition to the Gitana fleet at over 40 knots day and night is quite an art. It requires a great deal of concentration and lucidity as well as the opportunity to regularly alternate in this exposed and tiring post. That’s why Charles Caudrelier and Franck Cammas were keen to surround themselves with versatile sailors as much at ease trimming as helming.
