Perfect start for Interlodge team in 52 Super Series Saint Tropez

Austin and Gwen Fragomen’s US flagged Interlodge which has Cameron Appleton as tactician and 2020 Olympian Stephanie Roble debuting as strategist made their best possible start to the 2023 52 SUPER SERIES season when they posted two wins from the first two races of the 52 SUPER SERIES Saint-Tropez Sailing Week.

The first ever visit to France of the 52 SUPER SERIES opened with light 6-10kt SSW’ly breezes on the Gulf of Saint Tropez.  Interlodge were one of the first teams to recognise the advantage on the right side of the course and after making two useful starts they were able to lead both races from early on to win by a solid margin both times.

There was also a positive debut on the circuit for the Hong Kong team Alpha +. With Ian Walker calling tactics they were one of the three boats to benefit most on the right of the first upwind and sailed smoothly and confidently to hold third through the line, putting any first day nerves behind them.

Interlodge, who won only one race last season – in Puerto Portals, Mallorca – showed good speed around the course. In beautiful spring sunshine, veteran owner-driver Fragomen arrived back in the old port of Saint-Tropez wearing a huge smile.
