Nicolas Troussel: "We are happy because we encountered many weather conditions which permit to valid some points. Registering in this race, we wanted to race under difficult sea and wind conditions and that’s we got especially in the west where we had 35 knots upwind" even under automatic pilot on a long tack with the wind on the beam to the Fastnet.
