Spindrift racing were rewarded for their efforts as they sealed victory in the 2015 Tour de France à la Voile this evening in Nice. Dona Bertarelli and Yann Guichard’s team clinched victory after a month of exciting competition aboard the Diam 24 trimaran Spindrift, led by co-skippers Xavier Revil and François Morvan, and accompanied by Thierry Douillard, Frédéric Moreau and Matthieu Vandame.
This Friday, 28 teams will compete in the nine town and city acts of the first Tour de France à la Voile for multihulls, which will end on 26 July.
Following the serious accident on Tuesday at Lorient, and out of respect for the victim, Spindrift racing is temporarily suspending its sporting activities. Yann Guichard, skipper of Spindrift’s GC32, said : “Out of respect for the victim of the accident and those close to her, we have decided to suspend our training for several days. We also wish to pause from competition, and so we will not take part in the GC32 Racing Tour in England next week.”
