Surprisingly, renowned French yachtsman Franck Camma competed in Les Voiles de St Tropez for the first time this year. On Babsy's VOR 70, he snatched victory in the numerous IRC A group right out from under the nose of a brand new Maxi 72 Cannonball, and then set off in challenging wind conditions for a record round trip to Corsica as part of a campaign to raise money for the Cancer Patient Fund. Babsy was photographed by Gilles Martin-Raget during this attempt.
