Congratulations to Bigfoot for finishing the Koris Le Havre Double!

In conditions where the tide was often greater than the wind speed and all the other boats retired between Ryde and the west bound shipping lane, huge amounts of patience and skill were required to keep the J-105 going in roughly the right direction.

The race started at around 7:30 on the August Bank Holiday Friday evening and, eventually, it took 31 ½ hours for Bigfoot to reach the General Metz cardinal finish.

Well done to Rob Nelson and co skipper Bobby Drummond.
