We had an epic day today in conditions that couldn’t be worse for Dorade (massive wind against tide), but we kept up the fight and managed a fifth, which allowed us to secure second place overall in the regatta by one point.  It’s been a long week, we’re very tired, but we have a great feeling of accomplishment finishing second in this type of event all while going up against a very talented fleet. Dorade is an amazing yacht to be in the hunt against modern boats at a very technical venue – she always seems to surprise us!
