Rayon Vert – Multihull Line Honours in RORC Transatlantic Race

Oren Nataf’s Multi50 Trimaran Rayon Vert, skippered by Alex Pella crossed the finish line of the 7th edition of the RORC Transatlantic Race at 13:33 UTC in an elapsed time of 9 days, 3 hours, 33 mins and 19 secs.
 
Racing Two-Handed across the Atlantic in under 10 days is a remarkable achievement. Rayon Vert crossed the finish line at full speed, surfing in the Caribbean swell. Helen Spooner, who has organised the volunteers for every edition of the RORC Caribbean 600, greeted the pair with the assistance of the Antigua & Barbuda Coastguard. Oren and Alex were all smiles, receiving ice cold beers after finishing the 2,735-mile race from Puerto Calero, Lanzarote, Canary Islands.
 
Rayon Vert’s owner Oren Nataf is a member of the Yacht Club de Monaco and he last raced across the Atlantic in the 2019 Transat Classique. His classic Olin Stephens 49ft yawl Stiren was also skippered by Alex Pella. Next year, Nataf intends to race across the Atlantic solo with Rayon Vert in the 2022 Route du Rhum.

Rayon Vert’s skipper, Alex Pella is one of Spain’s most decorated offshore sailors. Pella won the 2014 Route du Rhum and the 2017 Transat Jacques Vabres, and was crew on IDEC 3 for the 2017 Jules Verne Trophy win.
 
The next boat expected to complete the RORC Transatlantic Race is Johannes Schwarz’s Volvo 70 Green Dragon, which is due to cross the finish line in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
