Armel le Cleac'h back in the Figaro driving seat

Thursday August 19 2010 Author: James Boyd Location: none selected

Congratulations to Armel Le Cleac’h on his second Solitaire du Figaro win. In a class where usually seconds count, the BritAir skipper won three legs out of four of this year’s race, to claim victory by 1 hour and 25 minutes over Francois Gabart (soon to be sailing the Barcelona World Race with Michel Desjoyeaux). At the Rolex Commodores’ Cup Ireland is running away with the lead despite being clawed back after a significant request for redress success by the Hong Kong small boat yesterday. Conditions have improved at the Syz & Co Moth Europeans reports Simon Payne.
