Fujifilm Dismasting, Port de Fécamp Orma 60 Grand Prix.

Fecamp, Normandy, France 49º46’10″N 0º21’57″E

This Port de Fécamp Grand Prix saw varied weather conditions (eight races sailed in medium, light and some strong winds), and highlights include several moments. A first day during which lots of boats suffered some damage, with Fujifilm (Loïck Peyron) dismasting in the second race, forcing her to retire prematurely from the Grand Prix. Another important fact is the rise of the new generation of multihulls, now more capable of challenging the older ones. But the latter still have good days in front of them … as the first two seeds of this Grand Prix demonstrate : Alain Gautier (Foncia) and Franck Cammas (Groupama).
