 The Larrikin and Mahe 3 cross the line together

The friendly spirit of the Atlantic Odyssey showed itself again today as the first boats to finish, Mahe 3 and The Larrikin, decided to cross the finish line together at 09:00 local (13:00 UTC). Mahe 3, an Italian German Frers 53 owned by Francesco Scuderi, was the first monohull to finish, sailing across the line alongside The Larrikin from Australia, owned by Gordon & Louise Coates and a Fountaine Pajot Hélia 44, the first multihull to finish the Odyssey.

Eighteen days since leaving Lanzarote, the crews looked fresh as they received a warm Martinique welcome from the Tourist Board of Le Marin, and the Deputy Mayor, Raymond Janvier.

 As Gordon summed it up:

 “It was an enjoyable crossing and a lot of fun. Pointing at the positions of other boats on the paper chart of the Atlantic was a highlight of every day. We made sure to have a nice dinner last night, with a relaxing glass of red wine, as Jimmy advised, and when we realized that Mahe 3 and The Larrikin were so close, we thought it would be in the spirit of the Odyssey to cross the line together, so we did!”

“It was an easy crossing,” added Francesco, “enjoyed by all the crew.”
