BATICUP 2015: JEFCO’s VICTORY DURING AN UNFORGETTABLE EDITION!
2015 will certainly remain BATICUP’s most successful edition, with 3 races played over two days, under ideal weather conditions (wind and sun) and an exceptional evening at the Pharo, under the “Bonne Mère’s” benevolent gaze.
It is in this context that the JEFCO boat performed by winning on 2 of the 3 races.
SATURDAY: A BRILLIANTLY SUBDUED FIRST ROUND
Saturday’s race was brilliantly subdued by the entire crew, with 20 knots of wind. The risky strategic choice of the skipper paid-off which enabled JEFCO to finish first at the end of Saturday.

SUNDAY: JEFCO’s VICTORY
Sunday’s first round was more difficult, since JEFCO only finished third due to technical difficulties, coupled by the excellent performances of the other boats.
But JEFCO was able to bounce back and put all its efforts in the fast last round; under strong wind (which did not allow the small and medium boats to do this round) she took the risk of going out with the Spinnaker from the beginning of the round, an act that ended up paying-off.
It was thanks to this proactive attitude that JEFCO finished first with 16 seconds ahead of the second place.
