Figaro 3 – Sardinha-Cup – St.Gilles Croix-de-Vie FRA – Leg 2 – Day 1

Yesterday late in the afternoon, the 21 two-person teams set off for the second and final leg of the Sardhina Cup in fresh winds around 20kn. The 775-mile leg is expected to last until Friday. Northerly winds make for a tactically challenging cross across the English Channel to the Scilly Isles, the return leg with astern winds should then be a speed race. This morning Pep Costa ESP/Will Harris GBR, holding close to the coast, were narrowly in the lead. Tanguy Le Turquais/Corentin Douget FRA are just 0.7 miles back in 2nd. —– The race-tracker, the report and the videos.
