Les Voiles de St. Barth
Wednesday, 12 April 2017
Walker added that the team had some good battles with Sir Peter Harrison's Sojana as well as Andries Verder and Arco van Nieuwland's Aragon, which took the second place position for the day, less than two minutes behind Windfall on corrected time.
“We have very competitive, comparable and well sailed boats in the Maxi 2 Class,” said Verder who shares the helm with van Nieuwland and marks this year as their third time competing at Les Voiles de St. Barth.
“We did very well,” added van Nieuwlan. “Everything apart from some small details went really smooth. Andries was on fire going upwind. We practiced almost the same course yesterday so we could do it with our eyes closed.”
George Sakellaris' Proteus, Peter Corr's Blitz and Frits Bus' Team Island Water World are still defending their 2016 class wins after today's racing in Maxi 1, Melges 24 and CSA 3 respectively.
