MOD70's complete Transatlantic crossing New York to Brest.
All of the MOD70's have arrived in Brest. Spindrift racing came in first followed by Edmond de Rothschild in second and Foncia in third place. Oman sail suffered equipment failure when one of their float mounted lifting foils broke and the ended up having to shift their one remaining foil from port to starboard with each tack (their float mounted lifting foil weighs 100kgs!). Race for water came in last they suffered damage when they hit a submerged container.
