Jamie Coombes from Sunseeker Torquay commented: “It was great to see the Solitare du Figaro in Torquay! I have personally sailed in similar races all over the world and I have the utmost admiration for the skippers in any competitive sailing race. Sunseeker Torquay wish all the best to our local skipper Henry Bomby from Dartmouth”.
