The Finistère Sail Tour draws to a close with its finest day yet ! Indeed, it is in glorious sunshine that the fleet took the start of the final race of this 30th edition, a coastal course around the bay of Concarneau. The racers then made for Port-la-Forêt to attend the results ceremony that concludes this 30th Finistère Sail Tour in style.

With the wind taking its time to pick up, instead of the two windward-leeward courses initially planned, the Race Committee launched a coastal course of around fifteen miles. The fleet cast off from the pontoons of Concarneau at around 09:00am this morning to make for the race zone to the south of the Linuen mark. The different starts for each category were able to be launched this lunchtime in a light breeze of 4 to 6 knots.

“Spinnakers at last !”

It was a fine race for the crew of “Super U Lanmeur – Cabinet Aballéa AXA Morlaix”, which crossed the finish line in first position. “ We headed off on a beat towards the Glénan archipelago where we had to round Les Grands Pourceaux mark, which is where we managed to extend away from our pursuer”, says François Charles. After that, the competitors were able to hoist their spinnakers and climb up towards La Voleuse and then the Linuen mark, which heralded the finish. “Spinnakers at last ! gushed a delighted crew aboard “Ramapapa”. It was a fabulous day’s sailing with the sunshine and just enough breeze, so we round off the event on a very positive note”.

"Bitourik 2" crowned

Geneviève Le Vaillant takes the win in the Finistère Sail Tour Trophy – overall ranking, all classes combined – aboard "Bitourik 2". A seasoned racer, she made a great comeback after her last participation back in 2009.

Double whammy for "Pivoine"’s rivals

Having already won the Youth ranking in 2014, the crew of "Pivoine" has made a clean sweep of the prizes for the second time by again winning the Youth ranking. And Patrick Dijoud’s crew did not stop there, since it also won the new Mixed ranking. A double whammy for their rivals then, which serves as a just reward for their fine 13 th place overall. “ I’m very happy as we’ve made sure that we’ve had a part to play in two rankings. I hope it will encourage others to sail with the youngsters because it works, and the same is true with the girls, that works too !”
