François Thorens, sporting Cellmen colours, sailed to victory on Lake Geneva
On Saturday 29 August 2020, the Swiss sailor François Thorens skippering his monohull "Cellmen TBS" won in 15 hours, 10 minutes and 39 seconds in real time the solo race SYZ Translémanique, the most difficult solo regatta on Lake Geneva. Each year, the 100 best solo sailors in the Leman region are lining up for the race. We were very proud to join him in celebrating his amazing victory, three years after his first win at this race.
The solo race SYZ Translémanique is very challenging and demands excellent sailing skills, high precision and the ability to push your limits. The talented yachtsman François Thorens demonstrated excellence and technical expertise, two qualities reflected in our brand. It was indeed on the 10th anniversary of Cellmen in 2019 that we committed to support him. The very same year, François Thorens and his team finished third at the epic Bol d’Or Mirabaud regatta, delivering an outstanding performance.
