The D35 season
came to a close today here in Antibes. The wind gods were a
lot more pleasant to the fleet today providing 6-11 knots of wind which
allowed for four races.
Artemis Racing had some up and down scores and finished 5th in the event.
This was two positions better than Velti Group (7th) who we were trying to
pass for the a third for the season. In the end we came up one point short
for the season and finished 4th overall. Still not a bad result for our
The top of the class was Foncia once again who won the event here, as well
as the season championship. Hats off to Michele Desjoyaux and the Foncia
team! Alinghi finished 4th here in Antibes and second for the season.
The boats will go back to Geneva now for the winter. The 2012 season will
start there in May.
I am off to Valencia tonight for a day in the office tomorrow before heading
to Croatia tomorrow night for the RC44 event there next week.
