Cécile Laguette's race book - 1st stage

We received videos from Cécile Laguette yesterday on the Deauville boat. Small postcards made during the first stage that delve into the world of racing and the daily life of skippers. It was his longest solo sailing. Leaving Sunday 19 at 13 p.m., she completed a flawless course until Tuesday evening, even ranking in 24th place. It was at the Cap Lizard lighthouse that luck turned for her: no wind and a contrary current made her lose all her lead. It is played in a few minutes and it will be impossible to reassemble. The experience was disappointing for the classification but intense. She progresses, sails better and better. His sleep management allows him to stay focused on the goal: to cross the finish line. The rule is strict: we add to the time achieved by the winner 30% to define what time it will close. Cécile will manage to pass two hours before and place herself 37th.

She has just left for the second stage towards Paimpol. More news to follow ...
