And they’re off! 

  • The gun announcing the start of the Bol d’Or Mirabaud sounded at 10:00 this morning, with a light southwest breeze. The fleet of 465 departed under a ray of sun, in mostly light conditions, which were expected to improve during the afternoon – until the arrival of storms that could be strong during the day or early evening.

    It’s Safram, helmed by Christophe Peclard, that rounded the extension mark first at Genthod, followed by Realteam and Okalys . The race is tight with the Décision 35 fleet in the lead. In the wake of the big multihulls come the M2s with the Swiss Medical Network team leading.
    Monohulls started the race with spinnakers flying.

    The road is still long and arduous. The conditions haven’t yet stabilized and the unpredictable weather will likely provide some surprises to the crews.
