We are very proud here at Myface Shop to be the sponsors of the winner of the Series Léo Debiesse. Well done.
Below is the English translation of the French article:
In the Series boats, Léo Debiesse (966 – Kelyfos), who led the dance at the end of the first two rounds, drove the point home by winning in front of Jean-Marie Jézéquel (951 – Branchet / KPL) and Michel Sastre (903 – Shaman). In the end, he therefore logically climbs to the first step of the podium.
Strong leaders hard-fought podiums
This proverb can also be applied to Series boats where, again, third place in the general classification was played out after the suspense between Fabrice Sorin and Lennart Bürke. The first will have had to wait long minutes to know whether or not he would get on the podium, during the awards ceremony scheduled for tomorrow. The verdict has unfortunately fallen for the skipper of Jules, who certainly got ahead of his opponent on this last act, but not enough to make up for his delay in the standings after two stages. In the end, he only missed sixteen short minutes in the cumulative time to join Léo Debiesse and Jean-Marie Jézéquel in the winning tiercé of this Les Sables – Les Açores en Baie de Morlaix.
” This is the game “, He commented with fair play, while his competitor did not pretend to hide his joy.
” I’m very happy ! I did well on the way up to Pointe Bretagne and thus passed the first waypoint in second position. On the long edge between the DST of Ouessant and the Gironde estuary, I whipped but I struggled to fight against the Maxi 6.50, however, I did not give up. I kept the maximum canvas possible in 35 knots and it was completely crazy! At the end, I knew that Fabrice was in front of me but I was sure that I could grab some ground on him in the calm at the end. I fought to the end to limit the gap between us with a constant eye on my watch! »,
Commented the German author, finally, of an 8e place in this last step.
“ I admit that I was convinced that I would not manage to keep my place in the Top 3 of the event.
This ranking is almost unexpected for me. I wasn’t expecting so much for my first Mini race, even though I know I still have a lot to learn, especially at only 21! »,
Added Lennart, emphasizing the remarkable consistency of Léo Debiesse, the big winner of this 2020 edition of the Series boat race. With two stage wins and 4th place, the skipper of Kelyfos has indeed shown solid in his first race on the circuit of the Mini 6.50. Tremendous in light airs but also quite at ease in strong winds. I’m sure this one hasn’t finished talking about him either …
