Didn't Pedote race the Scow in these races?
Yes, avec Remi Aubrun (it was a duo race). Yes you are right, I should have said any major race. On the the last La Trinité / Plymouth were racing 9 protos and none of them was a top contender except Pedote.

Raison bath tub bow boats have won more races and some major ones too. Let's say that they have not dominated the racing mini-Panorama as some would expect after the victory on the last transat.

They only win when they have favorable conditions and it is not a boat that can win in any conditions. They have lost a lot more races than the ones they have won (2 boats racing on the mini-circuit) and that reflects on Pedote ranking on the mini circuit (4th).

Here you have all the victories and other results:

Document sans titre

This year Pedote has been very strong but it is hard to say how much it is due to Pedote and how much to the boat.

Let´s see how the race goes. Pedote is not going away and the difference to the chasing pack had stabilized (45/60Nm).
