Route des Princes

Very interesting this race with three different types of trimarans: 50ft, 70ft and unlimited with only one racing on that class, the 80ft long Price de la Bretagne and I say interesting because the little boats, even without my preferred one (crepes whaou), are putting a big fight against the bigger boats and lead the race till near Gibraltar. Only then the Maxi trimaran and one of the Mod70 were able to pass the three leading 50ft boats that even so are not far away and way ahead of the remaining Mod70. What a fight

It has been a difficult race, most the way upwind and more upwind ahead, probably with 3 meters waves, while going up the West coast of Portugal till Lisbon with 15K winds. It is going to be an uncomfortable and wet ride, but a fast one
