Regates Royales 2015 – Day 1

The Bay of Cannes yet again provided fabulous racing conditions for Skylark and her crew. The first race was run in conditions over 20 knots of wind and the triangular course, twice round, provided a lot of work for the yacht crews as the warm Mediterranean spray flew from each yacht’s bow. Skylark finished the long day with a credible 3rd place out of 15, behind the well sailed yachts Manitou and Leonore.
