For the 19th edition of the Atlantic Telegramme Regatta, hosted by the CN Lorient from September 21-23, a fleet of J/70s enjoyed a friendly and sporting atmosphere of offshore sailing. Winning the 10-boat J/70 fleet was Bruno James’ team on LE MDCO CHERBOURG with a 2-1-1-1-4 tally for 9 points total. His crew was comprised of Hugues Dorriere, Olivier Fantou and Sebastien Metivier. Taking the silver was Philippe Guigne’s VIRTUAL REGATTA 70, with crew of Damien Scelo, Tanguy Caron, Jean-Yves Jaffrezic and Eric Guigne. Then, third place went to Herve Leduc’s PIERRE OCEANE, with his team of Loic Avram, Stephane Barraux, Mikael Garret, Etienne Luneau and Bastian Le Morvan (different crew for different days!). Rounding out the top five were Guillaume Plassart’s IZENAH IV in fourth place and Manuel Guedon’s SNT1-TBS in fifth place. For more Atlantic Telegramme Regatta information, visit
