Profurl and off-shore racing

Profurl and off-shore racing :

Our involvement in off-shore racing began in 1982, when Philippe Jeantot won the BOC Challenge on Crédit Agricole. Since then, Profurl has always been associated with off-shore racing's greatest exploits. In 2008 Profurl distinguished itself once again as Françis Joyon's technical partner for his new solo round the world record on IDEC.

We have the very best references!
