Lyssandra Barbieri's Dufour 40 finished the RORC Transatlantic Race in an elapsed time of 26 days 7 hours 51 mins 50 secs. The record entry of 23 yachts for the 2017 RORC Transatlantic Race have now been accounted for. As with every team in the race, regardless of time of day or night. Hatha Maris was greeted dockside at Camper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina, with cold beer and a warm welcome. Hatha Maris is the first all-women crew to complete the race.
“Fantastic, exhausted and elated.” smiled Lyssandra having completed the 3000 nautical mile race. “We did not want one more night watch, we were done. Everybody from the marina is here to greet us, there is beer there is food, we are very lucky people. Tonight everybody wants to eat a rare steak and a lot of salad, and rum with coconut water.”
