Just as we closed this issue of Sailing News, Guillaume Le Brec/Yann Riou FRA on the Proto 'Eva Luna' crossed the finish line of the Mini Fastnet at Douarnenez FRA to take first overall. A battle is going down for second place as the three followers are only 0.7 miles apart. The bulk of the Proto fleet is expected to finish today, including Jörg Riechers GER/Pierre Brasseur FRA ('mare.de') who put the pedal to the metal last night, hitting 10 knots at times as they climbed to 5th. In the Production-Minis, Xavier Macaire/Yves Ravot FRA continued to extend their lead to 63 miles. The results, the race-viewer and the report.
