Coved is lead partner of the boat skippered by Aurélien Ducroz in the 2016 and 2017 Tour de France à la Voile round France yacht race

The Paris Boat Show provided the backdrop for the announcement that Coved was stepping up its partnership with sailor Aurélien Ducroz by becoming lead sponsor of his 7.25-metre Diam 24 trimaran for a series of events, in which the highlights will be the 2016 and 2017 Tour de France à la Voile. Coved began its partnership with Aurélien Ducroz for the 38th Tour de France à la Voile round France race (3-26 July 2015) in which the Chamonix sailor finished 9th in the overall rankings with fellow crew members Olivier Backès and Laurent Voiron. Organised by A.S.O. (Amaury Sport Organisation), this competition is a major event of the sailing summer season. As well as being a top-class sailor, Aurélien is also a double world champion in Ski Freeride. But he also puts his elite sporting prowess to good use by promoting his own passion for the natural world and his commitment to environmental protection.
