Rupert Henry takes on CIC Normandy Channel Race

Good luck to CYCA Member Rupert Henry, who has set off in the CIC Normandy Channel Race – a 1000 nautical mile, two-handed race for Class 40s.

Rupert is racing his Lombard Class 40, Eora, with co-skipper Jack Bouttell (a winner of the Volvo Ocean Race 2017/18 with Dongfeng Race Team​).

The Normandy Channel Race is the first of three major challenges Rupert is taking on across the world in 2022.

In July, he will compete in the 1000nm, single-handed Drheam Cup, which also sets off from France.

That will have him well prepared for the 3,600nm Route du Rhum – one of the world’s biggest single-handed races.

We wish Rupert the best of luck in the Normandy Channel Race and for his upcoming adventures!
