 GC32Catamaran  Racing Tour 2017  Calvi FRA  Day 1, Carroll USA 4th
Fresh winds partly over 25 kn prevailed yesterday during the first races of the GC32 Racing Tour and spectacle was guaranteed as the big waves entered the normally protected Bay of Calvi to an extent that the swell was big enough to cause the GC32s to disappear occasionally into the troughs. Before racing started Erik Maris’ Zoulou buried her bow into the back of a big wave and capsized. Unfortunately in the incident, two of her crew sustained injuries and were taken to hospital.
Finishing 1 and 2, 'Realteam' with Jerome Clerc SUI has taken the interim's lead. The Swiss had sharpened their big-breeze skills during this season establishing a new Blue-Ribbon record on Lake Geneva in a strong North-Easterly wind. On rank 2 follow 'Malizia' with Sébastien Col FRA replacing the owner Pierre Cashiragi MON at the helm. 'Argo' of Jason Carroll USA with Anthony Koutoun USA steering is on 4th.
