2016

Spanish team #123 Tales II, skippered by Gonzalo Botín and Pablo Santurde, captured the 2016 Atlantic Cup presented by 11th Hour Racing title as they dominated the offshore legs and fared well in the inshore series. #145 Eärendil, skippered by French duo Catherine Pourre and Antoine Carpentier, finished in second place and #118 Oakcliff, skippered by USA’s Liz Shaw and Libby Greenhalgh (leg one) and Hobie Ponting and Andrew O’Donnell (leg two) placed third.

The pair from Santander, Spain was impressive in both offshore and inshore competitions, besting the field during the first offshore leg (Charleston, S.C. to Brooklyn, N.Y.) and second leg (Brooklyn, N.Y. to Portland, Maine). During the inshore series, they won two out of five races, winning the cup with a total of 69 points.

“We are really thrilled about winning the Atlantic Cup,” said Botín. “The combination of offshore and inshore racing made it exciting and challenging, but we are really happy with the end result. The Cup is a great event and it is very important for the Class 40 to be successful all over the world, especially in America.”
