The first Beneteau 30ft one designs are now into Madeira at the conclusion of the first leg of the Figaro class' two handed Transat AG2R.

Former Vendee Globe sailor Herve Laurent and co-skipper Rodolphe Jacq on board Colbert Orco put in a stunning performance in this high competitive class to win the leg by a 10 hours 34 minute margin, a feat they achieved by an interesting tactical option where after rounding Cape Finistere they hugged the coast of Portugal before heading out into the Atlantic.

The second leg to St Barts starts on Thursday morning (72 hours after the arrival of the first boat).
