Excellent images by Pierrick Contin.  Click pics for slideshow. Full gallery Day 3 at martiniquecataraid.com/fr/Mediatheque-2017
Simon Northrop & Simon Farren (Infusion / Hyde Sails) won their second consecutive stage  but are trailing in the overall on a dnf on day 1.

Manu & Jean Boulogne, are leading the overall in the F18 after 3 stages with their Cirrus R.  Second place for Benjamin Dutreux & Joris Cocaud  and third for William Sunnucks & Freddie White racing the Australian built Windrush Edge. Stay tuned for coming Australian F18 Nats next week.

Boulogne Cirrus R & Sunnucks Edge both equipped with Simon Northrop's Hyde sails.

Bontemps & Amiot lead the Flying Phantom fleet. Check Tomko & Atwood sequence, John has already completed a foiling gybe and he continues to push the FP to the limit.
Check photo #7 above: Re windward heel, I told today a design Engineer sending me feedback on TNZ foil, that original  J  foil version already had a great tendency to heel to windward and is the main cause for wipeouts here in BA on the FP or the F20s.
