Carac Advanced Energie, skippered by Frenchmen Louis Duc and Yves Sale, is one of the top teams in the Class40. Most recently Louis Duc led Carac to a 3rd place finish in the 2015 Transat Jacques Vabre which is a 5,000 nautical mile race across the Atlantic. Although their boat is an older generation Class40, you can expect this team to be well prepared and looking for a win.
