The competitors - 23 single-handers, 26 two-handed-handed boats and 21 crewed boats – evn talked of Danish Doldrums. In these conditions, the solo sailors, who had set out two days earlier, benefited from a little more wind - 13 boats were able to cross the finish line before the time limit. In the two-handed category, it was TRI, a Dragonfly 800 perfectly optimized with sails by UK Sailmakers – a square-topped main, Code 0 and asymmetric spinnaker borrowed from a J/80 - that managed to win in 5 days and 12 hours, some five hours ahead the second-placed boat, a J/105. Only one other competitor was able to be placed. This result is interesting - it shows that a small trimaran (and a far from recent model), that’s kept light and is well sailed, has serious arguments in light airs.
