Many yachts were back in time to avoid the severe weather, including Line Honours winner Gaucho, Keith MacDonald's Farr 44 from the Buffalo Canoe Club. The 2012 Sperry Cup winner for best PHRF corrected time is Umi Taka, Dennis Dice's C&C 35 from ABYC, while PCYC's Leszek Siek's J/35 Jaeger was awarded the new Sperry Gold Cup for IRC.
Class40 Latitude Neige - Longitude Mer - Transat Quebec Saint Malo 2012 Transat Quebec - Saint-Malo
In the Transat Québec St-Malo, the Open entries are taking the lead in the Atlantic Ocean as the fleet gets past Newfoundland. The Class 40 yachts are following their track with some recent changes in the lead. Mare, who had been leading since the St-Lawrence River, suffered some damage on their sprit and forced them to slow down; it was long before Geodis jumped at the opportunity to strike.
Hugo Boss Gustav Morin
On Tuesday, Alex Thompson left New York City to put his IMOCA 60 Hugo Boss through its pace ahead of the Vendée Globe by tackling the West to East transatlantic single-handed record. He would eventually smash the record by 24 hours setting a new time of 8 days 22 hours 8 minutes. Quite an achievement!
