    The video of the final. MACIF at the end had a problem : foil rake adjustment was blocked, which prevent them to have an optimal speed, during the last Mille they were at about 23 Knots and Gitana 29.

    The Foil System wins...and Gitana is first-so cool!!

    PS- Gitana's main foil /daggerboard was damaged when they hit bottom- so they were also handicapped in the latter portion of the race...
