We would not want to be in the shoes of this owner, who has just bought one of the most successful Farr 40s of recent seasons, Enfant Terrible from Ancona’s Alberto Rossi. The vessel, while on the reservoir at La Grande Motte, disastrously caracolled to the ground on the starboard broadside.
As chance would have it, Andrea Fornaro, who is in France preparing for the Mini Transat, was nearby and documented the incident with some photos on his facebook profile.
Enfant Terrible’s history is studded with successes, numerous on the Farr 40 circuit but also winning the World Orci Helsinki Group A in 2012.
