Everyone pulls a lot of individual and collective development back from it and it is by the wind that we discover the power of a successful collaboration. Whatever port we moor in, the most important thing is that the path is worthful and that the team meets safe and sane collaboration conditions.

Atlas met a beautiful development since its establishment in 2014, and it would not have been possible without the extraordinary commitment of its members and moreover its partners making each project possible.

It is throughout races and deliveries that we build our confirmed sailor network up in which each member gets to meet passionate friends in order to create their own sailing path. I wish you to find yours !

Godspeed and it will be a pleasure to gather on the seas!

As Georges Leblanc said « Facing the ocean, no one can lie ».

Indeed, the 2018 season brought a lot of events up to our team: technical difficulties, unpredictable weather conditions, and postponed races.

Despite that, and thanks to our members and partners efforts , all these events resulted in two victories in Saint-Pierre and in Toronto during the summer.

The 2019 season is being marked since January by the beginning of our adventure towards the 10th edition of the transatlantic Quebec - St Malo.

A crew is already getting prepared to participate to this legendary race on board of the infamous Esprit de Corps IV boat. Another crew is about to get prepared starting this summer on Esprit de Corps III, ensuring a strong Canadian/Quebecois presence on the starting line.

Wishing this season to bring a great learning, adventure, victory experience that will make you want to taste the ocean’s flavor !
