The front runners are the 5 prototypes : 950-Porsche François Champion, 787-DECOSAIL Sébastien Pebelier, 1019-BigBounce Pierre Le Roy, 800 Irina Gracheva and Victor Turpin’s 850-Pays d’Iroise.
For the Séries, Léo Debiesse on the 966-Les Alphas leads his category pursued by 4 competitors less than half a nautical mile away, the 914-Maitri – powered by Velotrade of Brieuc Lebec, Alberto Riva’s 993-EdiliziAcrobatica, Romain le Gall’s 987-Les OptiministeTribord and Hugo Dhallenne’s 979-YC Saint Lunaire.
