Winds finally fill in to give the 300 competitors a full days classic racing

Bright sun and fresh gusts welcomed the crews yesterday morning (Wednesday 1 October) in the Voiles de Saint-Tropez, and the 300 participating yachts were given the chance to truly test themselves for the first time this week.

The day was a welcome change from the start of the week – when the race committee was forced to shorten the racecourse due to changeable winds. Despite this Agneta, winner of the Rolex Trophy in 2007, finished second in the Marconi division just behind Rowdy but in front of Oiseau de Feu who finished third.

In the Schooner category Mariquita finished ahead of Lulworth, Moonbeam III, Moonbeam IV and Thendara.
