Panther wins

second and unfortuntately non-scoring race in the Tour Voile

Wednesday July 10th 2002, Author: Isabelle Musy, Location: France

The 40 Mumm 30's left the docks this morning to start a 28-mile non-points scoring race up the Loire from St-Nazaire to Nantes.

This race that gave a chance for the shore crews to have a sail. Rob Greenhalgh's Panther Team GBR crossed the finish line in first. It is their second victory after the prologue. This is the second time the Brits have scored a victory in a race that doesn't count in the points for the Tour Voile.

Jimmy Pahun's Région Ile de France is still the overall leader ahead of Nantes-St-Nazaire(see above), skippered by Pierre Loïc Berthet and Ville de Genève Carrefour Prévention skippered by Etienne David.

Hervé Gautier's CCS Essec is still leading the amateur division and Force EDC, skippered by Australia's Simon Sutherland is leading the student division.

Today, the crews are having a rest in Nantes and will leave again tomorrow. The boats will be delivered down the Loire to St-Nazaire. The coefficient 2 offshore race to La Rochelle will start at 17:00.
