SPINDRIFT RACING – Overall leader of the provisionnal ranking after their brilliant win in Leg 2 of the European Tour, Yann Guichard and crew entered yesterdays first City Matches in Cascaïs with a strong will to live up to their reputation.
The pressure is on, as all MOD70 crews also keep on improving race after race. Musandam Oman Sail (Sidney Gavignet) secured their first win in the entire competition during Race 3, and Race for water (Stève Ravussin) showed some serious winning capacities. The going gets tougher for Spindrift racing who managed to stay up front, except in the last race when an early start ruined Guichard’s chances to end up on a winning note. Overall, not a bad day considering Foncia’s disappointing fifth place. Lioght breezes are expecting all through the week end, and tight races are expected. Concentration, inpiration… and a bit of luck are the keys to stay in front in Cascaïs.
Spindrift racing crew in Cascaïs:
Yann Guichard, Jacques Guichard, Pascal Bidégorry, Yann Eliès, Thierry Douillard, Jean-Baptiste Levaillant, Devan le Bihan et Kévin Escoffier
