Historic Rolex Fastnet Race

The overall winner of the Rolex Fastnet Race has been announced and incredibly it is a doublehanded crew. Sebastien Rogues' race favourite GDF Suez came out on top in the Class40s, while a Mach 45 won the Canting Keel class. Impressively the doublehanded IMOCA 60s arrived in the middle of the VO70s and Mini Maxis, the top top separated by less than a minute. Victory nearly slipped through the finishers of Dona Bertarelli and Yann Guichard’s Spindrift 2 when there were also trounced by Banque Populaire on the finish line. See our report here. A great feather in the cap for the Dynamic Stability System – it has been retrofitted to Bob Oatley’s Wild Oats XI maxi.
