69 x 6.50

This Thursday, September 8 at 2:45 p.m., with a slight delay on the schedule initially planned due to squalls having disrupted the exit from the port, the kick-off of the 4th edition of the Duo Concarneau – Challenge BFR Marée Haute has given in the bay of Port-la-Forêt, off Beg-Meil.

Propelled by a solid south-westerly flow blowing between 18 and 25 knots, the 69 competing duos then set off in the English style (in the crosswind). If Yaël Poupon and Victor Le Pape (1051 – Bihannic – Groupe Asten) were a little too hasty to do battle but quickly repaired before continuing their journey, the tandems Louise Comont – Thomas Menou (Action Santé) and Léo Bothorel – Romain Le Gall (987 – Les Optiministes – Secours Populaire 17) got the best start.
