Roger Langevin aboard Branec IV has arrived in Newport 2nd place overall but it remains to be seen if he or Asia Pajkowska and Cabrio 2 will take the Multihull Class title.
David Southwood, Race Director said, “Branec IV appeared over the horizon off Newport in a heavy sea and a force 7 wind. He was well reefed down with just an inner staysail set. At the end of his 18 day voyage he was forced to tack agonisingly through the finish line which he crossed with great joy at 12:49 local time. He paraded Branec IV through the harbour to traditional gun salutes from the yacht clubs and hooting from vessels moored in Newport Harbour.”
