Victory at Fastnet

August 2015 : it was my fourth participation in Fastnet Race, after 1979, 1983 and 1985 editions. That time we won IRC4 classification, on board JPK 1010 Nautistock.com (first name Alkaïd. At the same time we finished third overall , more than two hours of the grand winner Courrier du Léon (JPK 1080),… but only ten seconds from Dream Pearls (another JPK 1080). Never try to find where you lost this ten seconds (too annoying). I prefer to remember that very particular feeling when we heard the gun on finishing line.
