2016 Atlantic Cup - Tales II First to New York City

Tales II in the port of Charleston
Team Bio and stats
The Tales II boat was the first to sail into New York Harbor after the May 28 race start in Charleston. Apparently, a tropical storm is very good for racing, since the Tales II boat not only wins the first leg of the 2016 Atlantic Cup, but they shattered the Leg One record, beating the course record by 6 hours, 7 minutes and 10-seconds! The 123 hull is sealed by 48-year old Gonzalo Botin of Spain and 28-year old Pablo Santurde of France. These experienced sailors have a total of eleven trans-Atlantic crossings between them and will be tough to beat now that they won Leg One.
