Drheam Cup – Destination Cotentin: Miranda 13th out of 29 Class40s

Drheam Cup finish 1Miranda and her Classs40 Campagne de France crossed the finish line of the Dhream Cup in Cherbourg on Friday evening just after sunset, and 4 days, 7 hours and 21 minutes of racing. She covered the 744 miles from LaTrinité sur Mer via the Fastnet at an average speed of 7.2 knots.

Miranda had a good race in the first few days, moving up to 8th place, but struggled on the last day from Wolf Rock to the finish line, finishing in 13th place: “I felt out of phase with the wind all day. Every time I changed sails, so did the wind. A number of lessons learnt!! So I am a little disappointed with my performance at the end. The rest was fairly positive.” 

 

29 Class40 competed solo in this race, providing a taste of things to come in the Route du Rhum where no less than 50 Class40s will line up for the start on the 4th of November.
