Charlie Dalin (MACIF Santé Prévoyance) finishes 4th in The Transat CIC!

Charlie Dalin crossed the finish line this Tuesday at 04 h 14 min and 28 sec (French time). The skipper of MACIF Santé Prévoyance took 4th place in the race after 8 days 14 hours 44 minutes and 28 seconds. At the end of a particularly breathless race, he completed The Transat CIC at an average true speed of 15.76 knots and finished 7 hours 50 minutes and 56 seconds behind the winner, Yoann Richomme (Paprec Arkéa).

Daline reported last night, "I have just crossed the finish line of The Transat CIC with MACIF Santé Prévoyance. The race went well. It's been quite intense since leaving Lorient. I was really happy with my departure. I made very good tactical and strategic choices throughout this first phase. It was the boat’s very first transatlantic crossing and my first solo since the Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe. I had a lot of things to put back in place and discover on this boat but it’s super interesting. I took lots of notes. We will be able to work well with the team to achieve even better results. In any case, I took great pleasure in getting back into competition and reuniting mysefl with MACIF Santé Prévoyance which I missed a lot last year. It was great to cross the Atlantic from the north and have rather favorable conditions. I had some small technical problems. Nothing too bad. A piece of rudder is missing on the port side for a while I think. And I had autopilot problems downwind which made steering complicated, with a wind sensor that no longer worked. And I went heavy in the first phase of strong northeast wind. I lost my mainsail traveler but I managed to find a solution with my team and repair it 24 hours after the event. It didn't bother me too much. I'm happy to discover New York by sea! »
