There were 30 yachts entered for the 2018 Helford to L’Aber Wrac’h race. It was a race of variable winds! Very light winds, if any, for the majority of the fleet, for the first six hours or so then it blew ENE 6 for the rest of the passage. Fourteen yachts finished and sixteen retired, some of whom motored towards France until the wind filled in.


The winner this year was Richard Hall in his Westerly, Physis, with two French yachts in 2nd and 3rd place.

1st Physis -Hall

2nd Oneida -Moreau

3rd Les 4 Vent avec West -Lanier
