Under a blue sunny sky and a little breeze, 55 boats took off at 8:00am this Thursday morning.
Already well ahead from its competitors, Erwan Le Méné on the 800 has rounded the offset mark in the lead, followed by Ambrogio Beccaria on 943 and by Vincent Lancien on the 679. Just a bit behind, Axel Tréhin on the 945 had to repair after hitting the mark. A little later, François Jambou on the 865 and Arnaud Machado on the 910 also rounded the mark.
Note: abandonment of 616 (electrical issue) and 740 (bowsprit issue)
