And here our winners doing some formation flying towards the mark.

They are in the middle sailing on AUS-192, flanked on the left by BEL-888 of Carolijn Brouwer and Liz Wardley and on the right by BEL-666 sailed by Gill de Bruyne and Kathleen van den Bulcke.


I couldn't resist as I think this is such a beautiful picture by Marco Lazzetta.

One of the benefits of being a formula class. The design slowly converges to the best setup possible and isn't stalled in a setup that once was considered best.
