The 5th stage of the Tour de Martinique in round skiffs is won by Sara / Autodistribution (Marin) this Friday August 5, 2022 at Le Diamant. The skiff of the Marin consolidates its first place in the general classification. As soon as they set off from La Française beach in Fort-de-France, the yolpers from CTDM/EDF (Lamentin) leap onto their upright antlers in an area they know better than the others. They take the lead at the first buoy, located at Port Cohé in Le Lamentin. The couriers then follow the coast via the islet to Ramier. CTDM (Lamentin), Sara /Autodistribution (Marin), Rosette Orange / Caraïbe (François), Ufr /Chanflor (Robert), pass in this order. But the wind is surprising and the strong gusts can make the race lose control. The Royal Fruits de Martinique/Adep (Trinité), Prixe/Banamart (Vauclin) boats sank. For its part, the team of William Saurin / Miltis, returns to a beach for a change of sail.

Without forcing the pace and being more consistent than the others, the crew of Sara / Autodistribution took the lead by overtaking CTDM/EDF. “The couriers of Sara / Autodistribution impose a physical challenge on others”, notes our consultant Henri-Emile Largen. Meanwhile, Ufr/Chanflor and Rosette/Orange Caraïbe are struggling off Anses d’Arlet. Sara /Autodistribution is in the lead… In another difficult part of the sea in this stage, at the Passe des Fous au Diamant, the Sailor’s skiff continues its demonstration. Ufr/Chanflor move up to second place. Upon arrival on Diamant beach, Sara /Autodistribution resists Ufr/Chanflor and wins the 5th stage.
