Re: 11:22 FRA823 Valentin Brault is in Blue Fleet, not Yellow?

Christian Nybo | 22nd August 2012 (11:06:31)

Care to mention the placement of NOR-12 Anders Loken, for the Scandinavian audience?

ceri | 22nd August 2012 (12:22:37)

FRA823 was in yellow for today's race

Christian Nybo | 22nd August 2012 (12:59:39)

Thanks, Ceri.

As NOR-12 went down in the start of the fourth Blue fleet race, us Scandinavians have to hope for the Danes (Sebastian Kornum DEN-24 and Jesper Vesterstrom DEN-111) in the Gold fleet.
