Normandy Channel Race - Imerys pipped on the line

Phil Sharp and Sam Manuard on Imerys who led the Normandy Channel Race for so long were pipped on the finish by Pablo Santurde and Fidel Turienzo on Tales II.

The two boats had been sailing within sight of one another since entering back into the English Channel Wednesday.

At the finish Tales II crossed 2 minutes and 49 seconds ahead of the anglo-french pair on Imerys.

Furthermore, this same battle is mirrored right across the fleet, with six boats neck and neck from Fastnet last night, followed by a four-way battle further back.
