LoftNets is the only company to get its technical nets approved by a third-party body
Thibaut Vauchel-Camus, Louis Viat, Corentin Douguet and Billy Besson, aboard the blue trimaran Solidaires en Peloton, won the DRHeam Cup in the Multi50 category
During this first part of the SEPtour, the Multi50 Solidaires En Peloton - ARSEP, with Thibaut Vauchel-Camus on board + sailors taking turns from one stopover to the next, was able to embark more than 120 people, including a quarter of MS patients and accompanying persons. He will have covered nearly 1,500 miles in 12 days, thus passing the 30,000 mile mark on the blue trimaran's speedometer!

Navigator Thibaut Vauchel-Camus welcomed aboard his trimaran, Michaël Gregorio, godfather of the Multi50, accompanied by Laurent Ruquier and Jean-Philippe Janssens.
Solidaires En Peloton – ARSEP set a new 500-meter record at the Brest speed base with a run at 32.22 knots. Thibaut and his crew placed second at the Brest Trophy last September 7.
LoftNets is very proud to support this project by designing and manufacturing Thibault's Multi 50 trampoline.
For LoftNets, the design and manufacturing of this trampoline was a challenge in itself!
We worked very closely with Thibaut to determine the best material combining resistance and light weight, and that respects the boat's expected behavior.
We are very happy to support this team formed by Thibaut Vauchel-Camus and his co-skippers.
Coming from racing catamarans, I gained experience in monohull ocean racing. Today, I am fortunate enough to be ocean racing on a multihull.
It is truly a pleasure to enter into a partnership with a trampoline leader for the upcoming Multi50 Solidaires En Peloton - ARSEP.
Performance depends first and foremost on reliability. With LoftNets, we have the guarantee of quality products and extensive technical experience dedicated to this new-generation boat.
A heartfelt thanks to the LoftNets team for their goodwill and motivation in supporting our sports and charitable endeavor.
We are proud to offer our experience to the Solidaires en Peloton challenge, a charitable endeavor in which we share both the sports and humane values.
We found both the sporting challenge and the ARSEP Foundation project to fight multiple sclerosis very compelling.
Our team strongly supports Thibaut and his co-skippers, and hopes to see him triumph on all the oceans around the globe, in such prestigeous races as the transat Jacques Vabres this year, just like he performed in the Route du Rhum in 2018, proudly displaying the values of solidarity and combativity!
