The Les Sables to Horta and back race is 2450 miles back and forth across the Atlantic and takes about 4-8 days each way. The race apparently is held every 2 years. This one began June 28, 2015 in France. The 8 racers came in to our marina, starting July 5th, and lined up across from where we are tied up in the marina, as seen above (Steve is to the left of one of the racers). These are Class 40 racers-sleek, multiple sails, built for speed and racing!!
