Loïck Peyron wins Artemis Transat in record time; French sailor claims third victory


OMEGA would like to extend congratulations to Loïck Peyron who won The Artemis Transat in a record time of 12 days, 11 hours, 45 minutes and 35 seconds.

Loïck Peyron also set another impressive record: he is the first sailor ever to win the gruelling transatlantic sailing competition three times.


OMEGA was the Official Timekeeper for The Artemis Transat, the world’s oldest solo sailing race. The course, in which solo sailors battle the elements as they cross the Atlantic Ocean, started on May 11th in Plymouth, England and finished in Boston, Massachusetts.


Again, we extend our congratulations to Loïck and express our admiration to every sailor who accepted the challenge of The Artemis Transat.
