We are very happy to celebrate the great performances the 2014 riders have reached in WEEK 3  despite difficult sailing conditions; with 1 week still to go, strong winds are forecast this coming Thursday.

Some riders are leaving us to go back to their countries.

The Dutch competitors Jacques van der Hout and Hans Kreisel have exceeded their best speeds respectively with 49.06 kts and 49.66 kts.
