RORC Caribbean 600 2024 : Sogestran Seafrigo (G. Pirouelle) winner

What suspense! With the British crew Tquila, led by Alister Richardson, leading the fleet of 11 Class40s just a few miles from the finish, neck and neck with Guillaume Pirouelle's crew from Normandy, the final scenario was full of surprises!

Indeed, as they approached the finish line, the wind became unstable for the two scows, leaving an opportunity for Nestenn - Entrepreneurs pour la planète, one nautical mile behind them, who seized it. A Sharp (Class40 pointed), first to cross the line in Antigua!

Sogestran Seafrigo finally managed to extricate itself from the difficult zone and crossed the line in second place. The German crew of Sign For Com (Melvin Fink) also made it through, and TQuila finally crossed the line in fourth place.

In a twist of fate, Jules Bonnier's Mach 3 received a penalty (for entering a forbidden zone), demoting it to fifth place.

Guillaume Pirouelle and his crew of Alexis Loison, Pierrick Letouzé and Valentin Sipan were crowned winners. "Superb racing between the northern Caribbean islands, it was super interesting. We had a great battle all along the course, with a lot of twists and turns and quite complex weather at the end. We were always in contact with other Class40s, which made the race very interesting for making progress with our boats, with lots of maneuvering and speed comparisons. It was a hard-fought finish, and we didn't do too badly! A thought for the Tquila team who sailed very cleanly but didn't get rewarded. Still, it's not bad to be sailing in the sun at this time of year!"
