Thierry Peponnet steps down from FRA 93 afterguard

The French boat tactician announced today that he will step down from his position and hand over to Tanguy Cariou. Former helmsman of Areva Challenge, Peponnet was replaced by Sébastien Col in July last year, and now feels an ‘important’ move was needed in the afterguard to counteract the team’s average results in Valencia Louis Vuitton Act 13.
