Schneider Rewards Racers Who Go Fastest and Farthest
Schneider is sponsoring the 1998 edition of the "Route du Rhum" sailing race, from Saint-Malo in France to Pointe-à-Pitre in Guadeloupe. Held every four years, the event draws the world's best skippers in a solo contest featuring the most advanced technology boats on the seas today.
Instead of sponsoring a boat, Schneider is actively involved in the race as the creator of a special prize awarded every day, from November 9 to 20, to the skippers covering the greatest distance in each category. To make the Schneider Challenge even more exciting, if the overall winner is a monohull, the skipper takes both prizes!
Through the Schneider Challenge, the electrical equipment industry is paying tribute to those who share its spirit of adventure, innovation and achievement. To find out who the winners are and learn more about the Schneider Challenge, check the Web for a daily update at www.rhum98.com.
