    First confrontation between the three: See at about 42 secs in where Gitana's port bow buries all the way back to the crossarm! Center rudder foil almost out, mainfoil close but still in......

    Macif raced Gitana, Banque Pop and Sodebo.

    In one race between Macif, Banque Pop and Gitana Macif got the start followed by Banque Pop and Gitana.......Gitana just barely won.

    Macif's reference to it is:
    We were in training with the Finistère Offshore Racing Pole for the last three days. We were able to confront for the first time Sodebo, Banque Populaire and Gitana, our future competitors on the Route du Rhum. This is a good omen for the future. "
    A rehearsal time which resulted in a fine show off Port-La-Forêt.
