SinC Big Picture Jackrabbit Crew

This shot came via Heather Mahady, crew on Jackrabbit who writes, “Here’s a picture attached from the Patos Island race this past weekend. We did pretty poorly but the conditions were a bit funky, anyways, hoping for better results Easter weekend at Southern Straits!”

The European portion of SailGP Season 4 got underway this weekend in Saint-Tropez, France. Having hit record breaking speeds last year on the Côte d’Azur, Phil Robertson and the Canadians were looking forward to this weekend of racing, but things did not turn out as hoped. A penalty in the pre-start of race one was a precursor of what was to come, and it proved difficult for the team to recover.

A collision with Spain early on in race one set the team back and translated into eight penalty points for the event and an additional four penalty points for the season.
