The Drheam Cup Destination Cotentin finished with an unprecedented double for the two women solo skippers Sam Davies (Initiatives Couer) and Isabelle Joschke (Monin) who finished first and second, an excellent result for the only two women in the IMOCA fleet. For Davies it is her first win solo in her new IMOCA which she has taken over from Tanguy de Lamotte. And for Joschke it is her second consecutive second place after the Monaco Globe Series event which she sailed with Alain Gautier.
Yann Eliès, on his first solo race with the newly configured Ucar-St Michel finished third and paid a glowing tribute to the ‘flawless’ sailing of the two women. Nine soloists finished this race which is a qualifier for La Route du Rhum Destination Guadeloupe.
