Race honors ALS victim

July 1st, 2014 / By: / Industry News

Beneteau America will sponsor the Sailing for ALS campaign, led by Beneteau dealership owner Charles-Etienne Devanneaux of Naos Yachts in Marina del Rey, Calif. On July 8, Devanneaux and his racing partner, Fred Courouble, will embark on a 2,070-mile journey from San Francisco to Hawaii as part of the annual Pacific Cup ocean race. They are sailing to honor the memory of Gilles Galerne, who in 2012 lost an eight-month battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
