La Solitaire du Figaro: Thomas Normand, first Bizuth at the arrival in Gijon!

After 3 days, 4 hours and 37 minutes of intense racing, Thomas Normand finished first Bizuth of the first leg from Paimpol to Gijon! A great performance for the 25-year-old young skipper, supported by Marinepool, who finished 14th of the overall ranking ahead of the best sailors of the fleet. The skipper onboard “Financière de l´Echiquier” crossed the line yesterday at 5.27 pm with 42 minutes ahead of the second bizuth. The Bizuth ranking is dedicated to sailors who are participating in the Solitaire du Figaro for the very first time.

The second leg of the Solitaire du Figaro will rally Gijon in Spain to Saint Gilles Croix de Vie on the French Atlantic coast next Sunday.
