Route du Rhum - Anne Caseneuve wins Rhum class
Anne Caseneuve on her Trimaran ANEO wins the Rhum class with a 2 day lead on her rivals. There's now a real fight for 2nd, 3rd, 4th place with Sir Robin on Grey Power currently lying in third place.
" It was a good race, my race was fluid, I did not break nothing. I enjoyed it and it was fast. The start was hard it was a real highlight. But is is a great race and I love it. I am glad to finish and this place is great."In this Rhum class, I improved over time, but I have not improved my race time because I've been faster. There were perfect conditions, the sustained wind all the time during the trades, that was superb. My boat is powerful and so fast. I had a rudder problem I was a little limited in the speeds. But this is not very serious just uncomfortable. I learned that Sir Robin Knox Johnston was third. it's really magic, it's a great sailor. I respect him a lot, I would like be there to greet him. this is my last Route du Rhum, I have done five, that's it!"Anne Caseneuve
