On the eve of the big day, we report that a series of withdrawals have been announced in the last 48 hours. For various reasons a dozen sailors have had to give up the chance to take part. We note in particular the absence of Ambrogio Beccaria and Chaffoil who were the big favourites for the Trophy. However, this reshuffles the cards and opens up other possibilities for the podium.
So, for the departure which has now been postponed until 13:00 tomorrow, Thursday, there will no more than 49 skippers, including 7 women.
The race briefing will be held this evening at 17:00.
