Fred Le Peutrec crossed the Boston finishing line
Fred Le Peutrec crossed the Boston finishing line of The Transat in 9th position, at 22h 20' 54''UT, (00h 20mn 54s French time) on Saturday 12th June after 11 days 9 hours 20 minutes and 54 seconds spent at sea.

On the pontoon in Boston, as the afternoon was drawing to a close on the other side of the Atlantic, Fred was welcomed in by Yann Marilley (Gitana Team's Manager), Marc Guillemot (skipper of Gitana X), Jean Le Houérou-Kérisel (Technical Manager) and Laurent Bourgues (in charge of composites) with the shore crew of the Gitana Team, all of whom have been on stand-by for several days. Some of his fellow competitors were also there, including Alain Gautier. Fred chatted to his shore crew and journalists about the various phases of his race, together with its ups and downs, but always highly instructive for Fred for whom this represents his first race single-handed.
Fred's Boston finish saw him in fine fettle as he had been able to rest during the last day of his race. He is pleased to have satisfied the aim he had set himself - to finish the race without any major incident for Gitana 11, although he regrets having come away from the weather system his opponents had for the passage of Newfoundland. A strategical error which cost him almost 24 hours compared on the race leaders.
