Today in Talmont at the French Atlantic Coast, the Prologue of the Transcascogne was on the program, but big waves prompted the Race Director to cancel the race, as a safe return through the small harbour entry would have been a risk for the tiny yachts. Most favorites of the Mini-Transat beginning in September, consider this regatta as a final equipment test. This is true also for Patrick Girod SUI always among the best Series Minis in this season so far. The performance of Simon Koster SUI, for the first time competing with the top-shots in the Protos Minis, is also of special interest. However, his objetive is to finish the race, as he badly needs the miles to qualify for the Mini Transat. The third Swiss among the 48 participants is Simon Brunisholz SUI.

The TdF continued yesterday with a 35 miles race along the French Mediterranaean Coast off Gruissan FRA and a very controversial wind situation during the whole race with the seabreeze and the Tramontana in the opposite direction alternating during the whole race bothered the teams. The leading group, including the overall first 'Groupama' was parked in a calm patch on the open sea at mid-distance, while the remaining fleet touched a fresh breeze along the coast and distanced the former leaders. Thanks to a 3rd race rank, 'CombiWest' with Frédéric Guilmin FRA moved on top of the overall rankings, as Pierre Pennec FRA with his 'Groupama' finished only 19th. 'Spindrift' with Xavier Revil FRA was the day winner. With rank 9, the best result at the Tour so far, Bernard Stamm SUI still on rank 21 overall considerably reduced the points' gap on the teams ahead of him.
