GC32 Racing - Zoulou leads in Marseille

Thursday GC32 Racing competitors enjoyed a full day out on the waters of the sailing venue for Paris 2024 and four races were completed.

In addition one round of the ANONIMO Speed Challenge was sailed.

This latter event was claimed today by Naofumi Kamei’s Mamma Aiuto! from Japan, which recorded an average speed for the two reaches and gybe between, of 14.33 knots.

The French team Zoulou, with stand-in Swiss foiling and catamaran expert Arnaud Psarofaghis helming, got off to a strong start winning the first two races.

These were both held in light conditions, for which Principal Race Office Stuart Childerley set conventional upwind starts.

This gave Zouzou (1,1,5,2) a three point lead ahead of Pierre Casiraghi’s Malizia – Yacht Club de Monaco (5,3,3,1) winner of the final race.

Realteam (2,7,1,4) skippered by Jérôme Clerc, claimed race three and sits in third overall.
