Sail-World.com : Krys Ocean Race - Race For Water victorious in prologue
Krys Ocean Race - Race For Water victorious in prologue

'Race For Water, winner of prologue - Krys Ocean Race 2012'    Krys Ocean Race
In the 2012 Krys Ocean Race, Steve Ravussin and the crew of the MOD70 Race for Water took the win in the prologue from Newport to New York when they passed Groupe Edmond de Rothschild in the final half mile to the finish line. Ravussin, one of the founders of the MOD70 class, could not contain his delight as he hugged his crew, which included class President Marco Simeoni.

In very light winds, Ravussin and his team looked to have slowed badly on the Coney Island shore, snared in a big calm zone. But when they extracted themselves they were able to sail a more direct course, accelerating past the race leader to steal a morale boosting first gun, just ahead of Seb Josse's team which lead out of Newport last night.

Race For Water completed the course in 12 hours, 53 minutes and 20 seconds, just two minutes and 30 seconds ahead of Groupe Edmond de Rothschild. Spindrift Racing skippered by Yann Guichard closed in on third with Foncia right behind. Musandam-Oman Sail brings to a conclusion the prologue from Newport to New York after sixteen hours of racing.

The fleet completes the race with a parade sail up the Hudson River to their base at North Cove Marina in on the South of Manhattan, where the trimarans will be based until the start of the Krys Ocean Race on Saturday 7th July.
