SPI Ouest France
April 05, 2016
The 38th SPI Ouest France regatta sailed on the Bay of Biscay was an experience no one expected just three days before it all began over the Easter holiday weekend. Organized and hosted by Société Nautique de la Trinité-Sur-Mer, the sailors in the 360-boat fleet were expecting a rather benign weather forecast but a powerful storm front moving through the area forced event organizers to cancel the remainder of racing for Sunday and Monday. Winning the OH2 Class with J/24s was F De Herce’s MAJIC with a 2-2-1. A Garcia’s INSULARIS finished third with a 3-3-4, fifth was V Maldonado’s REGATTA COPA MEXICO EUSKADI and in eighth was B Le Marec’s EL NINO.
