Beneteau First 40 updates

Great photos of the new Farr designed Beneteau First 40 from LAURENT VIDAL PHOTOGRAPHE DE MER .

Spring series at La Trinite for First the 40

First regatta for yachts Cornouaille Magic, Coup de Coeur and Courrier Zen during the 3rd week end of the spring series at La Trinite ( Brittany - France ).

Cornouaille Magic won the IRC trophy during the 6th race. The event took place with light winds ( 8 - 10 knots ).

Courrier Zen, led by Gery Trentesaux has performed very well too.
Even if she finished before Cornouaille Magic, the temporary rating handicaped her ( TTC 2000 vs 1.0890 for Cornouaille Magic, as she has already declared her certificate IRC), Courrier Zen has "given" the first place to the crew lead by Herve Ricoux.

The skippers of these 3 First 40 are very pleased with the yachts : very efficient deck organisation , well organized cockpits, and good speed.
