VIDEO - A 33-year-old Frenchman wins a 300,000 euros catamaran

For Alex, life changed during the 2019 Yachting Festival, when he received a phone call from the Excess Catamarans shipyard telling him that he was the winner of the Excess Challenge!

The Excess Challenge consisted of a virtual record, leading the participants, on board an Excess 11, to connect Cannes from Barcelona, in real weather conditions.

The first prize of this challenge consisted of... an Excess 11, a sports catamaran worth nearly 300,000 euros, one of the 5 models of this new multihull brand, launched by Groupe Bénéteau!

It was in the middle of the Yachting Festival that the announcement of the winner was made, knowing that Alex, a 33-year-old professional sailor from Marseille, did not receive the good news until the very day of the ceremony, at 14:00, for an official announcement made on the show scheduled for 19:00, the emails from the Excess Catamarans yard having gone into the spam box of his mailbox.

In this exclusive report, Yachting Art Magazine invites you to relive live, the announcement ceremony of the winner, full of emotion...
