Bodacious Dream Wins Leg Two of the Atlantic Cup Race!

Bodacious Dream was first across the finish line for the second leg of the Atlantic Cup Race! Matt & Dave crossed it at 8:14 EDT! It was a truly legendary race … and here are SOME of the reasons why.

  • Lecoq Cuisine – who finished 8.5 minutes behind BoDream in the first leg – finished just 5 minutes behind them in this one! Gryphon Solo II finishes 3rd, just 10 minutes behind BoDream.
  • Even more amazing is that ALL seven competitors finished the 30+ hour race within 45 minutes of each other!
  • Weather and wind conditions and variations were extreme and diverse. More on all this soon!
  • Interestingly enough, this is the same leg of the Atlantic Cup that Bodacious Dream won last year!
  • Total Elapsed Time for Bodacious Dream was 1 day, 6 hours, 19 minutes and 38 seconds!

Below is a photo of BoDream at the moment she crossed “The Jamestown FiSH Finish Line!”

And here is a photo – taken late in the race out the back of BoDream. On the horizon, you can make out Lecoq Cuisine. What a relentless competitor they proved to be!

And in this last photo from earlier this afternoon … when Matt was relieved of his turn at the helm, he decided to forego rest and to juggle clementinas instead!

And this was a race that Dave thought MIGHT just go till Tuesday morning! Instead it was a full tilt sprint right from the gate.

Anyway, that’s about all we have to say right now. MORE photos and videos … interviews AND “expert analysis” coming soon!

We’ll leave it with BiG congratulations to all the teams in the race, to the race organizers and to the whole Bodacious Dream Team … for a job well-done, and of course, to all of you for your steady support!
