When a boat is well-designed, through livable comfort when long range cruising,
it will also be competitive at regattas and enjoyable to sail.
The list of Grand Soleil results just confirms how valid it is in any condition.
Ted Ruegg and the GS 34 in second place at the Annapolis Yacht Club Regatta in ORC2
Congratulations to Ted Ruegg and his crew aboard the Grand Plan: during the regatta at the Annapolis Yacht Club Fall Series, the Grand Soleil 34 came an excellent second place in the ORC2 class!
Grand Soleil 43
Robert Coriat's Grand Soleil 43 "Couleur Soleil" wins Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez.
The offshore regatta, along the route Caorle - Grado - Pirano (SLO) and vice versa, was held with a lightness in the air that characterized the beginning and the whole journey, forcing the crews to continue tacking along the coast in search of the wind.
It was the first seasonal outing after the new tuning of the boat and the sails, which produced a very satisfying first result by crossing the finish line 3rd in overall and then 1st in the ORC International class.
