Giancarlo Pedote and Martin Le Pape arrive in 6th position of the Transat Jacques Vabre!

This Sunday, 28th November at 8:44 am (Paris time), Giancarlo Pedote and Martin Le Pape have completed the 5,800 theoretical miles of the 15th edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre yachting race, finishing in 6th place in the IMOCA category.

A remarkable performance for the duo of Prysmian Group and Electriciens sans frontières who have achieved a great trajectory, managed to exploit 100% of the potential of their boat and keep up with the pace of the big foilers, but also and above all to operate in total confidence for maximum pleasure and performance!

The operation "1 click = 1 meter of cable" launched once again!

For several years, Electriciens sans frontières has been able to count on the support of Prysmian. As for each race since 2019, Electriciens sans frontières and Prysmian Group have once again launched the operation “1 click = 1 meter of cable” with the objective of obtaining 3675 clicks to support the project of the Professional Training Center (PTC) of Birkelane in Senegal!

The objective was exceeded on November 26th thanks to the renewed support of the Prysmian Ocean Racing community on social networks!

To review the arrival of the race.


The PTC of Birkelane pursues the objective of training young girls and boys aged 15 to 24 years to obtain a certificate of photovoltaic solar panel installer accredited by the Ministry of Professional Training, Apprenticeship and Crafts of the Republic of Senegal. The goal is to contribute to the development of a training sector in photovoltaic energy, to the reduction of unemployment by increasing the employability of young people and to the economic development of actions in the energy and electrification sector in the area/county of Birkelane."
