Those are really bad news. She wanted so much to finish that race
She had invested everything on that boat. Really sad for her.
Nice to see that someone else is following the race:
It seems that after two big storms they have now an easy way to America. The race has been great. I am a fan of Tabarly, the one that is currently in third. He is the descendant of a great family of professional sailors and I would love to see him raise to that very exclusive first division, racing with the best, on Open 60.
