The sailing boat in Zenith colours led home the 518 boats that entered, winning in 5 hours, 38 minutes and 18 seconds – an excellent time set at the end of a tough and lively race. This is a good omen as the team is now on stand-by to attempt to set a speed record crossing the Atlantic. The 76th Bol d’Or Mirabaud, around Lake Geneva, will long be remembered by all crews as an exceptional race. Contested in a strong North wind, between 15 and 25 knots, the race conditions were idyllic, with warm temperatures and sunny skies.
"The strategy was to stay in contact with our competitors and not to take extreme options, so that we could seize every opportunity and keep some cards up our sleeve," explained Dona Bertarelli, skipper of Ladycat powered by Spindrift racing, the winner of the Bol d’Or Mirabaud, at the end of the race.
