Fastnet Race 2013: French Domination
Double-handed father and son team takes overall victory and French take the top 10 by storm.
Not only does this year's Fastnet Race look likely to be dominated by the French, the overall winner is a two handed boat with father and son team Pascal and Alexis Loison from Cherbourg, France. Their JPK 10.10, Night and Day, arrived at 07:19:57 BST this morning making their elapsed time 3 days 18 hours 29 minutes and 57 seconds for the 611 mile race. The Loisons slipped across the finishing line 36 minutes ahead of sistership Noel Racine's Foggy Dew which was fully crewed.
Winning the overall IRC prize in the Rolex Fastnet Race means that Pascal and Alexis Loisin will receive the Fastnet Challenge Cup as well as a Rolex Chronograph.
In such a tactical race for a two handed crew to take the top prize in the world's biggest offshore race is particulary impressive.
Also impressive is the French dominance in the overall standings with the current rankings showing 12 of the top 15 places occupied by French sail numbers, five of them JPK 10.10 models.
