4ème Challenge de Printemps 2014 : inscrits et classements (IRC 2)
Sunfast 3600 took the overall win, and looked pretty consistent - 1st and 2nd places, with the throwout being a 3rd in the final race. That 11th place and the three 4ths didn't help the A35's cause. However, it does say a lot about the people sailing the A35 that they're getting it dialed in pretty quickly. More quickly, it would appear, than JPK. And the MAT 1010 is truly a disappointment, particularly as this is exactly the kind of racing that boat was designed to excel in. Wonder what's going on with them.

We deal in lead, friend.
