Three bullet INEOS soars ahead at GC32 TPM Med Cup
After the storms, torrential rain and general greyness of the last days, the Rade de Toulon was in an entirely different mood for day two of the GC32 TPM Med Cup, the final event of the GC32 Racing Tour, held with support from Toulon Provence Mediterranée and the city of Toulon.

A swell remained rolling in from the east, drummed up by the previous days’ strong winds, but it had decreased and conditions were otherwise those for which the Cote d’Azur is world famous, with 10-15 knot winds and the sun in a clear sky.

Star of the day was unquestionably Ben Ainslie and his America’s Cup crew on board INEOS TEAM
