Singlehanded super-multis

Wednesday March 3 2010 Author: James Boyd Location: none selected

The ‘ultimate’ (unlimited) class in the Route du Rhum is looking set to be pretty damned exciting – from the initial sole entry of Thomas Coville’s Sodebo, there is now Franck Cammas’ Groupama 3 (albeit with a reduced rig), Yann Guichard’s elongated Gitana ORMA 60, while Eric Tabarly’s old Cote d’Or II foiler tri is also being revamped for the race. Still no word from Francis Joyon about his participation – but how could he resist? Action is hotting up in Auckland prior to next week’s LV Trophy event, with Ben Ainslie today leading the A division line-up in the Omega Auckland Match Racing Regatta.
