Campagne de France 1st Class40 in RORC Ile d’Ouessant Race

21 août 2016 Posted by miranda

HMMMHalvard Mabire and Miranda Merron on Campagne de France were first Class40 to finish in the RORC Ile d’Ouessant race. They crossed the finish line in Saint Malo a little after 0300 local time on Wednesday 17th August after a 400 nautical mile race from Cowes to St Malo via Wolf Rock and Ushant. The race proved an excellent training ground for the upcoming Normandy Channel Race.
“We encountered a wide variety of conditions” said Halvard. “It’s a highly tactical course, and that is precisely what we were looking for. We were able to push the boat quite hard, and we are happy with how she behaves. Now we need to line up against lots of Class40s to see what our Campagne de France N°147 is capable of.”
