Benetau Figaro II

and while we wait for more great images of the Ag2r Transat, some nice images of Thomas Ruyant sailing a Benetau Figaro II. A great boat that shoulf be at the end of its life as a solo racer. Soon many will be found cheaply for sale and this is a great offshore boat that can easily be modified for cruising.

Believe it or not the top guns that sail these animals are complaining that the boat is not powerful enough. I guess that today it is possible to do better. This is a great design but already with some years on it.
