The 13th Edition of Tour De Bretagne a La Voile kicked off yesterday (2nd July) with the Prologue race, which saw the 32 teams in a challenging battle with light winds around the Bay of Saint-Malo. For the first time in the races’ history three Irish Skippers were on the start line with RL Sailing Team becoming the first fully Irish team to compete in the famous race. The Irish newcomers, sponsored for the race by Hanley Energy, also finished in a commendable 7th overall after a close race in technical conditions.
