20 days 11 hours and 1 minute! This is the time it took Bryell 2 and his crew, led by Jerome Cathala, to complete his journey between Marina Lanzarote, and Christopher Harbor, St Kitts. Crossing the line at 21h01’00 ” (02h01’00 ” UTC + 1), this Britton Chance design signes a good performance. After having held out to bigger units in the first part of the race, thanks to a precise navigation and a total engagement of the crew, Bryell 2 experienced a very disabling incident with a twisted rudder. Imagine driving a car with a steering wheel that can turn to the right… but not to the left ! Despite this, the boat arrived safely, with a crew disappointed not being able to defend its chances to the end, but happy to have completed an exceptional maritime adventure. Hats off !
Bryell 2 and the tenacity experience
