REGATE DES PIRATES – 2020

Lake Geneva

It was a good day of sailing. First, the rain had the courtesy to call a truce for the duration of the race, and second, we sailed rather well.

We got off to an excellent start. During the 5 hours and 40 minutes of racing that followed, we managed to tack downward following the whims of the wind. Around 4:40 pm, a strong westerly wind arose, making our last ten minutes under spinnaker quite interesting.

At 100 meters from the finish line, the squalls started to rage. Judging by the looks of the swinging boats in front of us, with trawling spinnakers and other such acrobatics, we decided to lower our spinnaker. We crossed the finish line under mainsail alone, still at nearly 10 knots.

Next, all we had to do was to return to Geneva by tacking in the gale.

In the end, we finished 2nd in scratch time and 2nd in compensated time out of our class of thirteen competitors.

Congratulations to the team on your strong performance!

GENEVA – ROLLE – GENEVA 2022

The years come and go and the GRGs are similar.
We pass relatively well classified at the halfway point in Rolle but then the winds dropped completely, before rising again in an anarchic way, from the back, which caused a general regroupment and a totally random reshuffling of the cards (positions).
