After the beautiful victory of Mussolo 40 #107 in corrected time on the last Cape 2 Rio, it's now the turn of Kito de Pavant and his Made In Midi #142, to play at the lead of a race in IRC, the Quadra Solo-Duo Méditerranée.
The announced objective: "to get back on the water, to find again this atmosphere of start, to tack, to pass buoys"... and "to try to win all the regattas in real time! ».
It is in duo with Mikael Mergui that Kito is lining up for this Marseille event in which 48 boats are registered.
1st race: 1st in real time but 30th in corrected time .
2nd race: 1st in real time but... winner in corrected time!
3rd race (Marseille / Porquerolles - 53nm): 1h ahead of their competitors at the finish and a new victory!
4th race: victory in real time with a good lead but still insufficient for the corrected ranking (20th)
5th race: victory in real time and corrected!
6th (Porquerolles / Marseille): victory in real time. 3 hours after crossing the line, still no other arrivals ... which gives the duo still victory!
7th race: 29th in corrected time
8th race: 8th in corrected time
The red and yellow boat will have greatly animated this race by winning 4 races, half of the 8 races. Eighth overall is a very nice result in IRC, a system that is not very favorable to the Class40.
