nice run

It’s been a good few weeks for Dongfeng Race Team Alumni. 

In the Transat Jacques Vabre, Kevin Escoffier, Dongfeng’s MrFix-It took second spot with Nicolas Lunven on PRB, Jeremie Beyou on Charal along with Christopher Pratt finished just 6 minutes later while Pascal Bidgorry, who along with his fellow skipper Charlie Enright arrivedaround41/4hours later meant 3 Dongfeng sailors in the top 5 boats to finish which show just how smart the Dongfeng recruiting was with Kevin & Pascal doing the trip twice with the Dongers.  

Not happy with just an Atlantic crossing two other former Dongfeng team members are showing the fleet the way home in the Brest Atlantiques, in essence an Atlantic circumnavigation, with long time friends Charles Caudrelier, former skipper of Dongfeng for both their campaigns and Franck Cammas who navigated a leg for the Chinese team in the Volvo having skippered a winning team in Groupama with Charles as watch captain. 

With the pedigree of the above mentioned former Dongers is it any surprise the Dongfeng campaigns were so successful?
