A gentle breeze, warm sun, blue skies. One couldn’t have asked for better weather conditions for the fourth edition of the Gstaad Yacht Club Centenary Trophy. The Race Committee set the race area on a 7-mile-long costal course in 8 to 10 knots of wind. After some three hours, the first boat to cross the line, was Philippe Oddo’s Olympian skippered by Bruno Troublé. The very competitive P Class gaff cutter, at her first participation to the Centenary was then declared the winner of the Trophy, to the utmost delight of her crew. “This Centenary Trophy is a very special regatta, the pursuit format is great. We had to start late due to our rating and sailing among the fleet of centenarians was simply wonderful. One after the other, we managed to take over our competitors and got in front, crossing the line in first.” Said Bruno Troublé as he docked in the St Tropez harbour.
