Edhec Sailing Cup 2018

The 50th EDHEC Sailing Cup will take place around the Moulin Blanc Marina in Brest from 20 to 28 April 2018.

For the past ten years, Orange has been one of the main sponsors of the event, which brings together 3,500 participants for an intense week of competition on sea, land and sand. In total, more than 170 schools and 23 nationalities will be represented.


A different way to meet up

For Orange, the event is a time to meet students – future graduates in various disciplines – in a friendly and lively atmosphere.

For students, it’s an opportunity talk with Orange employees about their professions and career paths.

The Orange Seabercafé: an institution!

Orange also contributes its expertise and telecommunications services by offering a superfast digital experience at the Orange Seabercafé, a meeting place and connection point for all participants. Indeed, the Orange Seabercafé FTTH hotspot provides lightning speed surfing thanks to an Orange Fibre hook-up. Participants can also relax here and watch the latest TV series available on the OCS bundle of channels. A foosball table will be available, as well as a dive into virtual reality with the Orange VR Experience 360. A photographer will roam the site throughout the week to capture team and solo highlights, print them and share them on Facebook and Twitter. Finally, we set up a Question Box with our partner JobTeaser to collect people’s feelings throughout the week.
