Saint-Nazaire [ENA] In order to celebrate hundred years of Franco-American friendship following the landing of 1917 during the first Mondial War, numerous events and animations (sports competitions, concerts, fireworks) were held in Nantes and Saint-Nazaire between 16 and 25 June 2017.

But the culmination of this week of festivities was an unusual Transat which set the four Ultimate Maxi-trimarans against the second largest liner in the world, the Queen Mary 2 (designed in the shipyards of Saint-Nazaire). The wind against the steam.   An innumerable crowd has massed on the Nazarene seafront to watch the start of this exceptional race. The show was a success and reached its paroxysm when another giant made its appearance :  

The Airbus A380, designed partly in Saint-Nazaire also back from the Paris Air Show came to greet in its way the departure of this Transat while flying over Queen Mary 2 and the Ultimate at low altitude. The Queen Mary 2 arrived as planned on July 2 in New York. The Ultimate Macif by the skipper François Gabard will be the first to arrive at the feet of the Statue of Liberty on July 4th.

The Bridge 2017 : 4th FIBA 3x3 World Cup

On the sidelines of this transat, the 4th international FIBA 3x3 was held in Nantes, a basketball competition where two teams of 3 players compete against one basket. Each game lasts 10 minutes of actual play but this regulation time can be shortened as soon as one of the two teams totals 21 points.     Men's podium : 1-Serbia 2-Netherlands 3-France / Women's Podium : 1-Russia 2-Hungary 3-Ukraine
