Henry, Hannah and FASTRAK XII (our new Jeanneau Sunfast 3300) have had great success in the classic offshore Rolex Fastnet race this year. On the Team’s inaugural outing they produced some marvellous results and certainly deserve the celebratory pint they are enjoying in this picture taken at the finish. They achieved
- 1st IRC 3A
- 2nd IRC 3 overall
- 2nd IRC Double handed
Henry and Hannah ran a perfect race but not without its problems having split their code 0 and lost their wind instruments on the way back from the Rock. Despite the problems they maintained their position, reporting 23 knots boat speed at one stage and certainly got their Olympic aspirations off to a flying start
The Jeanneau factory team SF3300 SAPRISTI also ran a great race skippered by Alexandre Ozon and Luce Molinier, finishing 6th in IRC 3A, 9th in IRC 3 and 7th in IRC double handed.
It was an impressive first outing for Jeanneau’s new racing machine. It was a big race fleet this year, and the Sunfast 3300s showed a clean pair of heels to most of them!
