Bol d'Or Mirabaud start
The Bol d'Or Mirabaud set sail on Lake Geneva on Saturday at 1000 with, as usual, the most diverse fleet of lake racers. The race got underway in zero wind, although some boats seemed to have the uncanny ability to make headway in a millpond, most notably Luis Sanjuan and his crew on the M2 catamaran KSR and Michael Aeppli on the Dynamic Stability Systems Quant 28 Allianz Suisse. The latter in particular did well on the Swiss side of the 'Petit Lac' at the start of the race before she was overhauled by Jerome Clerc's D35 crew on the eventual winners Realstone Sailing. Among the monohulls Raffica, the monstrous Hungarian Libera class boat was also doing well as were the two former Full Pelts.
