A cloudy day with a wind range between 15 and 20 kts. It was a unique opportunity for the fleet to race in very good conditions and enjoy the first racing day.

Tomorrow they will race together on the Long Distance.  Forecast looks good early with  30 knots at 17pm. An early start can be done , last year it took 2hrs for Gurvan & Ben to complete the  Raid.
Sunday seems to be raceable too for the experienced crews srting  18knots to complete the course racing stage.
