Les images magiques du Queen Mary 2 de retour à Saint-Nazaire

Stephen Perry vit et travaille à Saint Nazaire depuis trois ans

A bord de leurs maxi-trimarans de classe "Ultime", quatre des plus grands skippeurs du monde ont pris dimanche à Saint-Nazaire (Loire-Atlantique) un départ spectaculaire à destination de New York, à l'occasion de "The Bridge", une course inédite qui les voit affronter le magistral paquebot Queen Mary 2. Elle l'opposera contre les quatre plus beaux catamarans de course en activité. A 19 heures, le 26 juin, François Gabart était en tête, suivi de Francis Joyon, de Thomas Coville et d'Yves Le Blévec. Ainsi que des feux d'artifice lancés depuis le pont de Saint-Nazaire. Des airs celui-là, en l'occurrence l'A380 de retour du Bourget.

"Nous (les proches des victimes, ndlr) nous réunissons ici tous les ans, c'est important qu'il n'y ait pas que nous aujourd'hui autour de cette stèle".

Des milliers de personnes ont assisté au départ du Queen Mary 2.

Les multicoques ont quitté la ville française en même temps que le Queen Mary 2, l'un des plus gros paquebots du monde, construit sur place, qui est associé à la course.

The laps wore on, and still Keselowski stayed out, eventually inheriting the lead when Jamie McMurray came to pit road on Lap 72. You know, the 47 auto down there ( AJ Allmendinger ), I just didn't see him and knocked the whole front end off our vehicle .

Pour revenir au sportif, cette course à travers l'Atlantique est aussi le point de départ d'une nouvelle ère de la course au large.

Selon la sous-préfète de Saint-Nazaire, Marie-Hélène Valente, environ 400 policiers et gendarmes (2 compagnies de CRS, 2 escadrons de gendarmes mobiles) sont mobilisés samedi et dimanche pour l'événement, en plus de la cinquantaine de fonctionnaires du commissariat de Saint-Nazaire et des renforts du département.

En outre, The Bridge s'inscrit dans le cadre des commémorations du centenaire du débarquement des militaires américains dans l'ouest de la France lors de la Première Guerre mondiale.
