The team from Lorient fought well today, taking the second place just behind Abu Dhabi !

Groupama sailing team skipper Franck Cammas:
"I'm very pleased with the result but the thing I'm most pleased with is all the work of the team, which is something we set out to improve over the Abu Dhabi stopover.

"We were confident and we were aggressive when needed. It's a good performance because we didn't feel strong in these conditions. We found things that are working better. We are improving and you can see it, when the boat is fast it means that everyone is focused on their job. It's good because I think we reached a new level."
This place is quite amazing for the French guys, who arrived fifth during the last two In-Port Races. Although Azzam won, what we will remember is the French progress. Come on guys, a little bit more efforts, and you'll do the same in Lorient !!
